Tales told for local schoolchildren thanks to Barratt Homes

  |  Published: May 10th 2019

Pupils from Broughton Fields Primary School in Milton Keynes had their imaginations brought to life by a professional storyteller thanks to Barratt Homes.

A professional storyteller was on hand both to play music and to tell an ancient tale to the local school children.

The storytelling session took place inside the school, which is less than a mile away from Barratt Homes’ now sold out development, Centurion Place on Cranmore Circle.

Mr. Nick Hearn, Head Teacher at Broughton Fields Primary School, said, “We’re very grateful to Barratt Homes for arranging the storytelling session.

“The children loved being able to take an hour’s break from their usual routine to sit and listen, even the teachers were engrossed in the session!”

Richard York, Professional Storyteller, said, “It was a pleasure to work with Broughton Fields Primary School. Storytelling gives an opportunity for the children to experience emotions through the characters in the stories, such as overcoming fear.

“I was delighted that the children listened very intently, and with real concentration.”

Glenn Copper, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Thames, said, “It was our pleasure to organise for the pupils of Broughton Fields Primary School to listen to a captivating story told by our fantastic storyteller.

“We like to stay active in the communities in which we build our developments and helping support the development of local school children’s learning is paramount to us.”
