Sixth formers from Bryanston and Blandford School lead their first literacy workshop at Blandford Library
Sixth form pupils from Bryanston and The Blandford School have been continuing their work in the community by hosting their first workshop at Blandford Library.
Senior pupils chose the story of King Midas from Stephen Fry's Mythos to start their series of workshops on the importance of literacy. Children from Years 8-10 were keen to read aloud and discuss storytelling, characterisation and the relevance of Greek myth today.
Dr Fearnley, Teacher of Classics at Bryanston, commented: “It was lovely to see pupils from both schools join forces to deliver this literacy project aimed at younger children. They are enjoying working together and discussing their interest in reading, in the relaxed atmosphere of the town library.”
Bryanston pupils are looking forward to the next session on Thursday 5 December in Blandford Library, which will include a prize for the best retelling of a Greek myth or creation of an original myth.
