All aboard the magic carpet….

Just had a wonderful afternoon storytelling at a local school, the  theme was International Book week to link in with World Book Day  and we went all over the world!

Based on a Barefoot favourite ‘Granny went to Market’ we went to Thailand, China, Africa and India, and yes it was much warmer on the magic carpet than the just above freezing UK.  Afterwards we were so exhausted travelling on our magic carpet we sat for another story this time from India and another from Jamaica.

Highlights include: playing pass the parcel with Russian dolls, wearing ‘fierce and funny masks’ and having a numerical spell put on the whole class by a witch!

All together now… “off we go on the magic carpet…”
