Storytelling Workshops for Schools

Storytelling Workshops for Schools

If you have started your lesson plans for National Storytelling Week in February or for World Book Day in March, why not consider booking one of our amazing Storytelling workshops for schools to support and enrich your pupil’s learning and love for literature?

Our storytelling workshops for schools are a hugely rewarding experience for all key stages. For KS1-KS2 our stories ignite a passion for literacy and cover a wide variety of class topics and cultures. This helps your children to gain an understanding of these areas of learning and the characters and stories they bring to life.

Book for Chinese New Year, Black History, Diwali, National Storytelling Week and World Book Day. From KS3 and upwards, our stories provide a valuable window into cultural and social learning, bringing the world and the common issues we all face to your listeners.

Why book a storytelling workshop?

If you want your children to develop a love of stories, reading and writing then storytelling can be a wonderful place to start developing these skills.

Our Storytellers don’t read from books they tell stories. Our workshops are not a written exercise but a live performance in which the storyteller uses all the skills of storytelling from composition, description, action, consequence and review.

So book a Storytelling Workshop today to immerse your pupils in an interactive, live performance which is immediately exciting and engaging and, depending upon the story, can be spooky, full of peril, funny and joyful.

Our Storytelling Workshops can be a performance only or a performance with a creative workshop. Themes can be discussed in advance so that the stories and the content fit with your topic and project.
