National Simultaneous Storytime

Yesterday at 1pm a group of students all sat down during their lunchtime to listen to a story. This was a really special storytime because many other people were reading the same story at the same time throughout the whole country! This was called National Simultaneous storytime and we joined over 1,062,000 other people that were reading Hickory Dickory Dash at the same time. Below is a video of someone else reading the story in case you want to check it out.


  1. Hey there Junior group of Gilberthorpes! My name is Parwin and I am a year 7 from Yaldhurst Model School. It is nice to see you participate in the Simultaneous read because our school also did the Simultaneous read too. I liked the story because it was just hickory dickory dock except it had a twist with it. It looks like you all enjoyed the Simultaneous read! Did you like the story?

    Kind Regards,
