Hi Toucan Class!
Each week, I'm going to read a story from a place around the world and provide links to any extra interesting information relating to it.
Week beginning 08/06/2020
Please look at The Ickabog sub-page to hear chapters 1-4 of the story read by Ms McAndrew, Ms Kite, Mr Morecraft and I.
Tales of King Arthur/Tales of Maui
Hello everyone, hope you're all safe and well. I started out reading Arthurian legends but realised the recording was quite short, so I've included a story about the Polynesian demigod Maui, too. Have a good week!
The tales of Ananse the Spider and the Forest Mother
This week, I tell a tale of the trickster spider Ananse/Anansi (from West Africa) and the story of the Forest Mother, a Warao tale about how the first canoe came to exist.
