Are you at home attempting to educate and entertain your offspring?
Do you fancy a frolic with some folktales?
The chaos of the Coronavirus has us all disorientated! It certainly doesn't feel too far fetched to claim that my current reality - attempting to work with wild offspring howling, prowling and scrabbling about a forest of disorder (and frequent discontent) - feels stranger than a tale told by our Brothers Grimm!
So, who is up for some story-orientated escapism?
I'll be blending a little bit of story with stuff that kids can use to get creative (and be accidentally educated) so join me LIVE on Facebook, TUESDAY and THURSDAY every week at 10.15AM, for a short and simple story-orientated English session (only fifteen minutes long) that uses story as a springboard for sharpening English skills!
Age? Everyone! Four to forty and onwards! If you like a tall tale and you're keen to help your kids experience language and literature in a creative way. (All sessions will also be uploaded to this page for those that find it tricky to catch them on the day.)
Afterwards, don't forget to visit my Story Blog to grab some tips, links and suggestions about what to do next for the inspired among you (EYFS to KS4 - and even grownups!)
REMEMBER - It's all about encouraging everyone to share more stories! Let's try to find some kind of calm in the solace of stories over the coming months as they provide an welcome escape from the strain of today's struggle and, most importantly, a TOTAL DISTRACTION from all things explicitly virus-like.
These sessions are totally free but if you would like to donate towards supporting The Square Food Foundation who are doing an incredible job of feeding Bristol's most vulnerable families during this time of crisis, please keep an eye out for the donate button I'll be adding to all my associated Facebook posts! Thank you!
