Mike Forbes - Storyteller

Story Time…

Year 7 pupils have made a fantastic start to the new term by learning about traditional tales in new and interesting ways. Groups of students were treated to an hour of stories when professional storyteller, Mike Forbes visited HWGS early in September.  Mike had his audience captivated as they listened to some familiar tales from childhood and some unfamiliar stories. The ‘tale-spinner’ shared stories from a wide range of cultural origins and the listeners experienced the magical art of oral storytelling. The pupils learnt that storytelling can be entertaining and interactive and Mike hopes that his listeners will have a go at re-telling the stories they heard during the sessions to their own audiences. I’m sure pupils have been inspired to tell stories and create new tales of their own!
