Pupil Voice

Pupils in La Classe Vert had a day of storytelling.  They were asked if they enjoyed the storytelling activity and which story was their favourite, this is what they said...

William said, “I enjoyed it because it was fun.  When he told stories with Cinderella and The Magic Cat, I liked it when the cat talked: he turned into a prince. Cinderella had to be really kind to the magic cat.”

Zachary said, “My favourite part was Jack and The Magic Shoe when he flew up into the castle. The magic shoe is making jack go really fast. Jack gets the cow and the cow gives golden milk. It turns into coins when you put it in the fridge.”

Luke said, “My favourite story was Jack and The Magic Shoe, the giant trying to get the cow with a rope. Jack cut the rope and the giant loses balance and he falls down with a big crash.”
