A creative storytelling workshop for Primary Students

This storytelling workshop is a fun and creative way for students to develop their speaking, listening and storytelling skills. Students will learn about the structure and stages of a narrative, while using both language and non-verbal communication skills such as tone of voice, face and body.

A professional storyteller will guide the students in a jointly composed story, encouraging students to share original and imaginative ideas, while participating in a series of dramatisations.

This curriculum-linked workshop will provide a unique opportunity for students to develop crucial interaction, presentation and listening skills while exploring the inner world of their imagination.
