Year 1 Story Telling Workshop Kibundgo

On 16th March the Year 1 boys were treated by Friends of Squirrels to a story telling workshop.

 Kevin Graal came and inspired all the boys to tell a traditional Brazilian tale about a fierce rainforest monster called Kibungo.  Whilst listening carefully to rainforest sounds the monster character was introduced through rhythmic drumming and chanting, which the boys enjoyed joining in with. 

Once the beginning of the adventure had been told it was up to the boys to decide how they thought they might finish the story.  The boys drew pictures in a story wheel with their imaginative ideas but nobody guessed that the solution to the story involved a dance!  The boys were captivated from start to finish.   Thank you to Kevin and FOS for such a special day.
