Visiting Author Inspires Girls

October 9, 2013

On Monday 7th October, Author, Storyteller and Actor, Chris Connaughton visited Inglefield House and held workshops for all the girls throughout the school.

For Years 5 and 6, Chris retold and performed a Charles Dickens piece (The Signalman). All the girls were thoroughly engaged and on the edge of their seats throughout. They were given the first line of a story and told to write an opening paragraph, using adjectives and their senses, to create a suspenseful, nail biting story beginning.

During the workshops for Years 3 and 4, he retold and performed the story of The Firebird (Russian fairy tale). The girls were given parts of the story to elaborate and make more interesting by adding their own details and events.
