A successful year of Storytelling

Wednesday 21 Nov 2018

Our Storytellers have told stories to over 4,500 children and demonstrated storytelling to over 750 teachers. The feedback from the teachers has been fantastic and a few typical responses have been:

“The children were paying attention, engaging with props and taking turns. One of our children who would normally cry in the sensory room was actually quiet, looking and listening to the story. It encourages children to listen carefully and engage with the story.” Vale School, Haringey

“The two stories were both very appropriate for our class of PMLD pupils (aged 3-8). The content was fun and interactive, at a perfectly pitched level for our class. All seven pupils sat and were engaged for the whole 30 minutes (one of these rarely sits for more than 15 minutes normally). Wow! Staff could see the level of engagement and motivation. It was perfect. Thank you very much.” Portfield School, Haverfordwest

“The storyteller was fantastic, delivering the stories in an enthusiastic way and with perfect pace. All children were really engaged with the great variety of multi-sensory resources. They clearly enjoyed both of the stories as they were really focused and smiling/vocalising throughout. Two of the children, who are particularly tactile defensive, responded wonderfully. They explored all of the resources without hesitation. Super responses. Our more tactile defensive children will be more likely to experiment/explore the resources in future sensory stories. Fantastic! Thank you :) ” Old Hall School, Walsall
