The Orchard School has been awarded a best practise in Story Massage Award! Some children across the school and in Early Years experience Literacy through Story Massage. There are many benefits of this wonderfully simple positive touch activity. Story Massage is a fun and interactive way of combining the creativity of story telling with the benefits of massage. Our children really enjoy these sessions. If you would like to find out more see Helen Edgar class 2 teacher.
