"He has such an easy-going, practical understanding of how to promote creative writing in the classroom. Inspirational! His lessons must have been so much fun for the children."     Delegate North Lancashire November 2012 


I normally work with four groups of children in one day. The sessions can be in the class, hall or in a separate room and it is always best if the children are of a similar age.

Depending on the age of the children the sessions last about 45 minutes to an hour. I am more than used to working with large groups of 90+ children.

I can lead the groups for different activities: Stories for EYFS, Writing for Y2, Plot development for Y6, Character for Y3-5. Or any combination that fits in well with your  plans. I am very flexible and as long as I have a few day's notice I can deliver a 'bespoke' combination of stories/ writing/ story anatomy and analysis to fit your needs. 

AIM:
Through repetition, miming, part-signing and questioning the children will use their voices and actions to participate in a story.

A single session would include;
· A short introduction to the music that I play with an original song that details what a   story needs.
· An age-appropriate traditional story.
· A session of movement.
· A story created with the children using everyday classroom objects
· A Q&A session where the children can ask me about writing and performing stories
· A short 'cooling down' session where the children are encouraged to listen
to a short piece of music as the stories are reiterated.

Almost like a P.E. lesson I always try and return the children to the classroom calm and collected.
