Stories for Schools
Stories can be such a great way of enhancing learning - from number stories that make counting fun for foundation stage, right up to coming of age stories to help KS3 and 4 explore issues in PSHE.
For schools I offer a variety of options:
Traditional Storytelling - bringing stories from around the world to enhance your chosen theme
Story workshops - traditional telling with games, activities and discussions to bring the story and it's themes to life
Storymaking workshops - children learn to create and tell their own stories, developing their spoken language skills
Drama workshops - children bring stories to life in theatrical performance
I've worked with children in education for many years - first as an actor running workshops alongside theatre-in-education performances, then as a Lifeskills tutor, and then running youth drama projects as an Artistic Director.
I bring all that experience and understanding to my storytelling work in schools and I'm happy to tailor my sessions to the needs of the children involved, and to the particular themes the teachers wish them to explore. I have worked with children with a variety of special needs, and am happy to create sessions specifically for special needs schools and groups.

Does your child have a favourite story? How about a party based on it? Or what about a themed party? Pirates, knights, fairies, dinosaurs and just about any character you can think of can be brought to life in a story party!
Whatever the story or theme, I will create games and activities based on it and lead the children through them, and then finish up with an interactive telling of their chosen story, or even an interactive story made up on the spot - starring your child and their guests!
