Storytelling Days & CPD

I am extremely passionate about the power of storytelling to stimulate speaking, listening and motor skills across the curriculum.   I endeavour to make my sessions accessible for all and have experience working with pupils with additional needs.  I believe storytelling is vital in inspiring speaking skills, creativity and inclusivity amongst EAL pupils.  I work flexibly across all key stages and can deliver my fun interactive storytelling sessions comfortably to class size groups, multiple classes and whole school groups.


  • A visit to every class
  • Fun, interactive, accessible stories around a choice of themes with follow up activities, games and resources for teachers.
  • An (optional) culmination assembly during which each class will share the stories they have learned.
  • An extended performance piece with a selected class group.
  • I am happy to liaise with teachers in advance and deliver topic appropriate stories from my extensive repertoire

My storytelling INSET comes in 3 parts

1. Storytelling - I'll aim to inspire staff to become natural storytellers to their pupils by going through a range of fun activities, games, techniques and tips that can be taken directly into the classroom and wider school environment.

2. Story making - I'll demonstrate with resources how to stimulate young imaginations through story making activities featuring a range of methods, accessible for children with additional needs

3. Singing and music - I'll lead staff in a lively session of simple, accessible songs and focus on how to use music across the curriculum
