Welcome to RAPSanory-this is RAPS version of the Jackanory the reading show that ran from 1965 -1996. The digital age may have changed our viewing habits but not our appetite for stories.

However we access them, child or adult, stories enrich our lives. They enlarge our vision, introduce new ideas, show us how other people think and live. They challenge our wits. Make us laugh and cry. From the days of sitting round a fire entranced by the saga of Beowulf, stories have fed our imagination as much as bread and butter feeds our tummies.

Our teachers have recorded their favourites, so are you sitting comfortably? Then click on a story and let the RAPSanory begin.
