Aletheia Academies Trust Storytelling Festival 2022Abigail Kemp
On the 13th of July 2022, Aletheia Academies Trust held its very first Storytelling Festival at Saint George’s All-Through School, which some pupils from Shorne were lucky enough to attend!
The storytelling festival included pupils from Rosherville CofE, Horton Kirby CofE, St Botolph’s CofE, Cliffe Woods Primary, and Halling Primary, all coming together to share their stories. Through actions, expressions, and even a prop or two, the children dived into the world of make-believe and brought their imaginations to life, for the audience of their peers from around the Trust.
There was a whole range of stories including “Sidney Spider-A Tale of Friendship” and “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” as well as some of the pupil’s very own uniquely imaginative stories! It is opportunities like these that show just some of the benefits of being part of our Trust. Bringing the children together allowed them to develop and practice oracy, in addition to growing their confidence in performing in front of others.
