ABOUT THE DAY
This is an exciting opportunity to work with three internationally renowned practitioners who have different, yet complementary approaches to story-making and story- telling, for and with children.
Pie, Hugh and Patrice will between them, provide participants with a wealth of structured and practical activities to take back to school and use. The activities will enable children to learn, create, tell and re-tell stories and will help improve children’s talk, storytelling and writing.
The day starts with Hugh Lupton’s powerful and extra-ordinary retelling of the story of ‘Beowulf’. Participants will then attend workshops on ‘Storytelling within Talk for Writing’, ‘Visualising Story’ and on ‘Story-drama’. At the end of the day, we will celebrate and share some of the outcomes.
• KS2 and KS3 teachers
• Other Arts in Education professionals who work in schools with children and/or young people
