Storytelling at Burchetts Green

ImageI was invited to tell stories at Burchetts Green Infant School last Thursday. The children are amazing, full of natural humour and responsiveness to the stories, and we had a glorious time. In assembly I told the tale of the Three Spinners: the entire school was on its feet spinning flax. I told two Berkshire Folk Tales to Years 1&2, The Cheviot Shepherd’s Charm and King Gaarge and the Dragon – they have been working on George and the Dragon in class, so this was a chance to talk about the Berkshire version of the tale.

Burchetts Green CofE Infants’ School is a voluntary controlled school located near Maidenhead. The Office in Standards of Education has rated the overall school as Outstanding. The school currently has an attendance of 56 pupils ranging from 4-7 years old. The school has got a pupil to teacher ratio of 15 pupils per teacher, which is significantly better than most schools.

Musical Museum

Yesterday I went with some of my family, Ed Jo and Jacob,  to the wonderful Musical Museum of automatic instruments at Kew, http://www.musicalmuseum.co.uk/. We listened to music on their mighty Wurlitzer. Then a Lebanese meal in Richmond. It was a great day out.

Lancashire, the Hannah Beswick Tale

12 Hannah Beswick

Hannah Beswick was terrified of being buried alive, which is how her body finished up in a clock.

Read the tale in Lancashire Folk Tales, out in June.
