Outreach Visits

In Autumn 2020, as your students and colleagues gently get back into the rhythm of the school environment, how about easing the transition by hosting a storyteller for a day of soothing stories? We are offering storytelling both in-school and online.

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 also happy to shape the content of the session to the themes of your creative curriculum or scheme of work you are working on.
