CHRIST Church CE School, Colne, took part in National Storytelling Week.

Andrew Peers, headteacher at the Keighley Road school, said: “The week was about giving out to all cultures, tales that gave a twinkle to the eye and that raise a question in the mind and stories that have survived the brightness and the shadow of man’s imagination.

“As a school we decided to celebrate by inviting Sue Allonby, a storyteller, to work with all year groups on the Thursday.

“I’m sure that the children were encouraged and given more motivation to pick up a book and read more often.”
