Our pupils were mesmerized as Emily entertained them by sharing her rich background in folk tales, myths, ballads, poems, and her fascination with the ancient art of oral storytelling.
This #NationalStorytellingWeek has been wonderful so far! Here are Year 6 @AmblerSchool getting ready to hear some #urbanlegends. Off to St Paul's with St Michael's in #hackney tomorrow #hackneyschools #islingtonschools #storytelling @sfs_uk pic.twitter.com/StQcTC2ZOk

The pupils then got to put their imaginative and creative skills to the test, practising their own methods of storytelling. Check out some of our favourite photos from the day below:
The children will use the day as inspiration for their next writing piece in Literacy and all their teachers cannot wait to see the end results!
