A Storytelling Workshop is highly engaging and is entirely suitable for both Primary Schools and Special Educational Needs Schools.
The compelling nature of storytelling will fire your children’s imagination and give them an extended listening experience.
They create a relaxed atmosphere enabling children to participate fully in the stories and props and instruments are sometimes used in the sessions.
World War 1 Centenary
Listen to well known and lesser well known tales and myths around the Great War. Hear about Jack of South Shields who led donkeys on the beach and then as an adult rescued injured soldiers from the battlefield with the help of a donkey.
Find out through letters to and from home how the Land Girls of 1917 saved our country from famine. Taking a sensory approach pupils will begin to appreciate why digging the soil for potatoes in England was very different to digging ditches in France.
Using the stories as a stimulus pupils can retell a story through story maps, spoken word or try their hand at writing letters. Stories may be interlaced with songs, games or factoids to reinforce learning.
Many of the stories will be animated and involve actions, singing and discussion. All of our Story Telling Workshops encourage children to have an imaginative response, leaving them with stories in their heads to retell at home.
The stories can be from just about anywhere in the world, and cover just about any topic. They range from traditional stories and fairy tales to world stories and are chosen to suit the ages and abilities of the children.
These Story Telling Workshops can be used to enhance your existing teaching programme or to add to your Arts weeks, Cultural Weeks and Book Weeks and we can also offer special topics and workshop activities.
