Why attend?

Storytelling schools are transforming approaches to literacy. Evidence has shown that in a short time, writing outcomes and pupil motivation has profoundly increased. It is a new and exciting way of delivering primary education that takes stories from around the world, uses a talk-based approach to explore and play with them in order to inform a structured and effective approach to writing. Using the Story Museum’s expertise in this field, this course is an exciting way to embrace literacy teaching within the New Curriculum.


We will explore innovative ways of learning to tell stories as an approach to inform teaching and learning. Get children to become confident in playing with language and how to plan and implement this strategy in order to support the English curriculum.


Ideal for: KS1 & KS2 Teachers looking to improve writing standards


Evidence underpinning this approach

All our courses are delivered by experts in their field, who are researches, trainers and classroom practitioners. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a high quality research informed, learning centred training experience.
