Pupils will become bookworms as a school gets ready to celebrate National Storytelling Week.
More than 200 Year 7 and some Year 8 pupils at Bishop Stopford School will have stories read to them throughout next week as the school takes part in the national event.
Novels which have been earmarked to be read to the youngsters include Why the Whales Came by Michael Morpurgo and one of the Doctor Seuss books.
Staff will use various props and different styles while storytelling to help get the students involved.
Hilary Sutton, librarian at the school, said: “It’s a great opportunity to promote the enjoyment of reading as well as storytelling.
“The students are really looking forward to it.”
