Celebrating Stories at Ark Kings Academy

As part of our celebration of National Storytelling Week 2020, we invited a professional storyteller to come and share some of her best stories with our students.

In the secondary phase, students in Year 7 were treated to stories about Mary Anning, one of the greatest fossil hunters to ever live. Students learnt the story of Mary’s life, as well as two of her most famous discoveries: the ichthyosaur and the plesiosaur. Students were delighted to also have the opportunity to examine both real-life fossils and replicas as part of the experience!

In the primary phase, some students were also treated to the stories of Mary Anning, while others listened to tales about Chinese New Year. Like our secondary students, the primary pupils were enthralled by these stories of different times and cultures!
