Before half term, Team Hawkhill tried incredibly hard to learn the story ‘Warhorse’ off by heart to perform at our Storytelling event. The Upper Juniors had been studying War Horse and had been fully immersed in the text before writing their own recounts as Joey, inspired by the Michael Morpurgo text!
This story was particularly tricky and the team showed great resilience in learning it! Since learning it, phrases have begun to pop up in our writing – particularly Josh’s biography where he quoted, “Came news that would change their lives forever: War had been declared!”
We all enjoyed the storytelling afternoon and hearing other performances – especially Badger’s retelling of Alice in Wonderland and team Oak’s Rainforest Adventure!
Why not watch our short clip and find out what happened to Joey in this incredible story.
