It's National Storytelling Week!
Busy Bees Training Academy have been celebrating National Story Telling Week by holding a competition for our Busy Bees Childcare Apprentices.
Here at Busy Bees at St Matthews, both of our Childcare Apprentices were keen to get involved in this special activity and spent lots of time preparing and gathering props for their chosen stories.
Courtney chose "The Itchy Bear" by Neil Griffiths as her story. She made her own story sack, using a cuddly "Itchy Bear" pictures of all the other animals in the story and even made her own Papier Mache apples! Courtney even included a second book for the children to follow the story themselves.
Amelia, who is our first year apprentice, chose Goldilocks and the Three Bears, making her own story sack filled with props for the children to use and so they could also join in with the story telling. Amelia shared the story with children from our 2-3 years room.
The children loved listening to these popular stories and playing with the props.
Good Luck in the competition girls!!
