Performing the stories :)
We have been practising a retelling of some of the Greenaway stories to perform to younger children in our school. We have tried to make them interesting by using props, actions, freeze frames and different voices!!!!

Hi all, We've had our first meeting, begun to look at the books and funked up our group page! Still more to do though... At our next meeting we are going to study the selection of books more closely and think up some questions to ask the infants when we share the stories with them. We also need to begin writing some book reviews, so look out for them! Coming soon...

Some people hate reading books. They think they're boring. However, you can learn a lot of things from books; more than you can learn from your parents or teachers! By Hadassah Record: read 7 books in one day.
