Storytelling and Workshops

 
 creative storytelling  

Storytelling has been used as a way of teaching since early civilization and it can be just as powerful a teaching today's curriculum.

Our stories cover topics from history and geography curriculums.

The benefits of teaching through storytelling include:

  • Increased knowledge retention and deeper understanding of the topic as the story gives pupils a framework for their memories.
  • Improves oracy and literacy by increasing their knowledge and use  of language. The characters can also give them the starting point for their own stories.
  • Engages all pupils including those with SEN as it is a multi sensory approach.

We offer author visits and puppet making workshops. The puppet making workshops also cover aspects of the art and design and design tecnology curriculums.

For information on us a authors please see our Meet the Authors page.

We also run workshops for teachers and pupils on storytelling, creative literacy and writing fiction. We are always happy to tailor workshops to your requirements. For more information please see our Workshops page.

We are also happy to do public speaking at events or meetings.

"All the activities have been fun to do for both adults and children. Lovely to have everything you need for a completed project."
