Come and step inside a story with me today
and let your imagination run wild.
"Thank you for a fantastic session.
The children didn't stop talking about it and asked if it was taking place every week."
Thorpe Hall School
The curriculum at both Key Stage 1 & 2 supports the use of storytelling to develop spoken language and reading comprehension. The following sessions have been designed with these aims in mind.
Story Quest Sessions
Interactive story sessions with optional linked creative and/or instructional writing challenges which can be topic linked. They also include an optional return visit to share in writing challenges.
Epic Story Quest Sessions
Longer Story Quest sessions where students listen to and create their own stories through guided exercises.
These can be stand alone sessions and topic linked or can be a series of recurring sessions.
Virtual Story Quest Sessions
All the fun and interaction of a Story Quest, but virtually. My preferred platform is Zoom so the sessions can be fully interactive and as close to an ‘in person’ visit feel as possible. However, I’m happy to work on other platforms including Google Teams, Facebook live and You Tube or to provide pre-recorded stories where prefered.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Burnt Oak Primary
The children thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling session and so did the teachers. As I sat in my office just outside the room used for the storytelling I heard children saying "that was brilliant" "that was so good". Thank you Hannah for engaging with our pupils so well.
Wentworth Primary School
The children and teachers involved in the sessions thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Teachers have asked if we could organise for you to come back!
Thriftwood SEN College
All of the participants enjoyed the experience. They were fully engaged, even the ones who to begin with felt they were too 'cool' to join in. The staff were delighted that it was such a successful, inspiring experience. One teacher plans to build her whole series of lessons for the following week around the story.
