WORKING WITH CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS

Creative Arts are the glue that makes learning fun. The Arts Council of Wales through their Lead Creative Scheme has been promoting creative practitioners to go into schools and share their creative practice. As a storyteller I have been benefitting from this project. I continue to work with dozens of schools using storytelling in a  creative, collaborative, and fun-filled endeavour with the objective of raising oracy levels, reading and writing, and confidence building. These efforts are in line with the requirement by the Welsh government’s curriculum for the study of English Key Stage 2-4.

These workshops and performances I conduct are immersive and interactive. Here are some pictures from some of the schools I have worked with.
