Apprentices from Busy Bees nurseries across the country captured the imaginations of young book worms as they brought stories to life and created their own story sacks as part of a competition by Busy Bees Training. The competition was launched to mark National Storytelling Week – an annual event hosted by the Society for Storytelling.
Busy Bees nurseries took part in the event from Monday 1st February – Friday 5th February, and gave children the chance to venture outside to nursery gardens or local parks and collect items to help them narrate their favourite story.
Lucy Jakeways, a level 3 Leadership and Management learner from Busy Bees in Kettering, impressed the judges with her narration of popular children’s book Harry and his Bucket Full of Dinosaurs. Lucy used puppets to engage children in the storytelling before extending the learning opportunities and introducing dinosaur-themed measuring and counting games.
