Experiencing Picture Books
Learn about the benefits of reading, sharing and studying picture books and how they can develop a life-long love of stories, higher critical thinking and social skills, including with older children.

Creating Oral Stories
Learn different ways to experience an oral story using objects, story sacks and spontaneous storytelling techniques. Banish inhibitions so you and your students can relax and enjoy practising this ancient craft.

Building Narrative Environments
Learn some top tips for making your own themed story space simply, cheaply and effectively, with inspiration from The Story Museum’s unique slant on curation.

Extreme Reading Adventures
Reconnect with the delights of reading and discover some outlandish, vibrant and definitely do-able ideas to engage reluctant readers with books and longer texts.

Teachers as Writers
Based on the philosophy Simon Wrigley, founder of the National Writing Project, that teachers of writing should themselves write, this session helps teachers explore their own creative writing and learn about the pedagogical benefits of doing so.

Stories for Global Diversity
Find out how to diversify your bookshelf and storytelling in the classroom. Explore stories from all around the world, from traditional tales to books hot-off-the-press, including our latest adventure with animal stories from the First World War, Incredible Journeys.
