World Storytelling Day 2022

Once upon a time, a long time ago (well, actually, back in 1991 in Sweden), a Storytelling Day was held. The ethos behind this event caught on around the globe, and now we celebrate World Storytelling Day on an international level.

The aim of World Storytelling Day is to celebrate the art of oral storytelling, with as many people as possible around the world telling and listening to stories in their own languages
on the same day.

The theme last year was New Beginnings.

This year the theme was...

Together we can...

Thameside decided to celebrate World Storytelling Day 2022 (March 17th) by first of all sharing the book 'Together We Can' by Caryl Hart. The children then worked together, in classes, to design their own story book canvases which are now proudly displayed around the school.
