For some more information, please visit http://www.sfs.org.uk/national-storytelling-week
1A will be learning to tell some of the stories of Nasreddin Hodja, the famous Iman / Mullah of Turkey! We will also be learning about Turkey and Sivrihisar, the Hodja's home.
The half term got off to a great start with multi-cultural diversity week. We saw a fabulous story teller, and made our own stories based on her work. We also learned 2 traditional Turkish tales, The Pot The Died and The Smell Of Soup, both Nasreddin Hodja stories. We learned a little about Turkey, where Nasreddin Hodja is reputed to have lived, and particularly looked at Sivrihisar, which is the nearest town to the village of Horta where he resided. Sivrihisar is a little to the west of Ankara and surrounded by rocky mountains. It's very historic yet little visited by tourists, and has only 2 hotels, neither of which have very modern facilities!
Next week we will be learning how to make paper!
