Storytelling sessions for Schools

A story brought to life in the classroom can be
an unforgettable experience for young learners.

The participatory nature of my sessions means that the students are always actively engaged throughout:

assuming roles, using their bodies to create scenery,  
making soundscapes, using their imaginations etc.

This has many benefits including:

– Deepening understanding of the text

– Widening vocabulary

– Developing creative thinking

– Improving speaking and listening skills

– Inspiring their own creative writing.

I offer tailor-made sessions focusing on particular books or themes designed to fit in with your studies.
