Gripping Yarns

On Thursday, we welcomed Simon from Griping Yarns who delivered another fantastic performance called ‘Standing by!’ This was a story (told with life sized puppets) aimed at highlighting issues surrounding bullying and the implications of ‘standing by’. Simon very effectively explored the feelings of the different characters in his story i.e.the bully, the victim and the children who were standing by!

As usual, we were all captivated by the performance which was delivered to children throughout the day in a very effective, meaningful way and age appropriate way. The children were thoroughly engaged and some really good discussions followed! It was great seeing children asking questions and knowing how they can fight against bullying.
