NATIVE Americans and Biblical figures were among a host of colourful characters who descended on a school to celebrate the art of storytelling.

Children from Arbor Preparatory School, in Risby, dressed up, explored different forms of communication and shared distinctive stories during the event.

As part of the activities, a traditional gathering drum called pupils to a storytelling circle where they enjoyed a range of games.

With a totem pole taking centre stage, Pocahontas and her tribe, African characters and Biblical figures shared in the excitement around a wigwam.

The forms of communication explored included smoke signals, sign language, semaphore and Morse code.
