Cynthia joined us on 26th April (Wednesday) for a story-telling session. Rather than using books, Cynthia told stories with the use of puppets, props, lots of drama and familiar songs. She engaged the children with a very interactive hands-on experience. This year, the children were introduced to stories about 'The Queen with magic slippers"; "A very hungry rabbit" – with the assistance from our own Ms. Rachel; "Genie of the teapot", and "Tiddlelick the frog" with the assistance from Caleb, Kaylie, Ari and Armani. We all look forward to her next visit.
