Our current offer

The Story Leader will tell traditional oral stories from around the world, and use these as a stimulus for children to create stories of their own. Choose from the three strands for our Stories for Emotional Healing: Dreamers, Tricksters, and Shapeshifters

  • Dreamers: Stories for wellbeing – stories reflecting the five ways to wellbeing (connect, take notice, stay active, keep learning, give)
  • Tricksters: Stories on philosophy for children – stories that lead children to discuss deep ideas, big questions, and work out puzzles
  • Shapeshifters: Stories for escapism – no messages, no morals, just pure silliness and laughter

We are happy to shape the content of the session to the themes of your creative curriculum or your scheme of work.

“Each teacher said how engaged their children were with your storytelling – some were hanging off your every word! Your use of props inspired some children to incorporate them into their stories. There was great discussion around the characters and what they might be up to. We were so appreciative that we couldn’t find anything to improve on!” – Teacher, Zoom storytelling session, March 2021

"The students were asking us not to go on a break so that they could finish their poems." - Headteacher, Saint Christopher's School
