I aim to engage with the creative energy of children, improving listening and speaking skills as well as confidence. Work thus follows a progression from listening to literacy as orally created stories can be taken on by staff into written work. Many exercises are done in groups, therefore calling on team-building and co-operative abilities.
For children from Nursery to Year 8
An extensive repertoire of stories from Britain, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and North America, plus story-making and performance exercises suitable for children in these age groups.
For children of Year 9-13
All of the above plus longer stories from Celtic and Viking mythology. Also, creative writing workshops and more extensive storytelling workshops.
