Story Telling Workshop
Story Telling Workshop
Introduce your children to the mystical art of storytelling.
Storytelling is used as a medium for passing on knowledge and entertainment in every culture worldwide. Our traditional storytelling workshops focus on improving children’s speaking and listening skills in a fun and engaging way.
Master storytellers will transport children (and staff!) into another world as they listen to and get involved with dynamic traditional tales, fairy tales, fables, myths and legends.
Our spellbinding storytelling workshops are designed to complement the National Curriculum and are an excellent addition for your World Book Day celebrations, as well as being perfect to enhance your literacy curriculum throughout the year. This workshop is suitable for Nursery, Key Stage 1 and 2, as well as Special Schools.
World War 1 Centenary
Listen to well-known and lesser-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.
