Wild Words

What better way to introduce and explore our rich literary heritage and oral storytelling tradition than through an exciting outdoor-inspired storytelling workshop?

 

Pridie's creative story-crafting workshops nurture and develop literacy skills by encouraging children to approach stories in a weird-er and wild-er sort of way!

 

Incorporating lots from the outdoors, her extra special storytelling sessions are all about engaging with a great tale! Accompanied by sounds and sensations that bring the characters and their adventures vividly to life, her workshops focus on inspiring the real imagination experts to dive wholeheartedly into creating their own improbable plots and fantastical characters within minutes of the 'happily ever after'!

What's it all about?

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” – Philip Pullman

Oral storytelling is one of the oldest and best loved cultural practices that continues to be relevant, even today in our media-saturated society. We are all storytellers - constantly telling tales to inform, entertain, inspire and connect with others.

For many years, I taught English in secondary schools and during that time I learnt that the best way to excite and inspire young people - whatever the topic - was by telling a tale! Not only that, but it became very clear that if words are combined with wild (in the form of the 'outdoor classroom') - magic happens! 

It's all about encouraging and empowering children and adults alike to reconnect with both the world outside and the stories to be encountered there; to provide for them a spoken word experience that stimulates learning and a deep appreciation of the special connection that exists between stories and the Great Outdoors

CPD Training for Educators

Whether you're keen to get fresh ideas for teaching literacy, language and literature, or looking to develop your existing curriculum with more outdoor inspired activities, Pridie works closely with schools to design CPD sessions that provide your staff with a whole heap of exciting and imaginative ideas to take back to their classrooms!

 

Perfect for practitioners seeking to teach in a slightly 'wild-er' way both inside and outside the classroom!
