Outdoor telling around a fire circle

I was asked specifically to tell some ‘darker’ stories for several of the older students at a Special Educational Needs School. I need’nt have worried, they loved it. The comments that I received from staff included.

“Never seen them sit so still, so engrossed”

“We have never seen him so animated and expressing himself verbally so much before”.

The young person in the second statement kept saying, “more, more stories”.
