Our Wild & Wiggly Word workshops nurture and develop literacy, story-crafting and creative writing skills by encouraging children to approach literature in a weird-er and wild-er sort of way! They feature an exciting variety of imaginative outdoor-inspired activities; each incorporating an element of The Great Outdoors and using strong sensory stimuli to spice up every exercise. In re-creating a bit of wild inside, we bring story-telling very much to life! From folk tales around the fire to the sniffing, scratching and sampling of objects encountered in our tales and leopard crawling across a floor in pursuit of an entirely new perspective; our sessions are as much about discovery and exploration as they are about weaving a worlds of words!
Clubs: This summer, we are running a small number of unique holiday workshops for young storytellers and aspiring authors who are keen to spin some wild and wacky stories in an outdoor-inspired environment! At our welcoming and friendly sessions, children can be themselves and write freely without fear of any dreaded red pen! There is no right or wrong; it's all about crazy creativity and the weirder and wild-er, the better! We recommend group size is between six to eight. We will also provide additional resources and follow up tasks that parents and children can use at home to further develop their story-crafting skills!
Schools: Each day / half day workshop is carefully tailored to engage pupils at exactly the right level in order to have maximum and immediate impact. We can design workshops that cater for a wide range of needs, including Pupil Premium, Gifted & Talented, English as an Additional Language, pupils working below their expected level and reluctant writers. We recommend group size is between six to eight students. We will also provide additional resources and follow up tasks that teachers/parents/children can use at home to further develop their story-crafting skills!
