Storytelling Residency

Touring: All terms 

Traditional Tales, Values, Compassion, Communication and language

Age Group: 3-7 (EYFS & KS1)


The Play House Storytelling Residency consists of a Storyteller working with small groups throughout the day. During the sessions the children co-create and share stories together based on a multi-sensory, initial stimulus offered by the storyteller. The storyteller then builds on ideas and any developing narrative coming from children's responses, both physical and verbal. We work with teachers to understand current learning focus and desired outcomes.


Addresses the following areas of learning in the EYFS and KS1 Curriculum: 

  • Communication and Language.

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

  • Literacy. 

  • Expressive Arts.

Outcomes / Participants will...

  • Explore communication and language.

  • Problem solve, using creative and imaginative skills.

  • Confidence, self-regulation and social skills.

  • Expressive Arts & Literacy exploration.

  • Develop further personal, social and emotional awareness.

"These experiences are vital for all children in helping them to explore their understanding of the world around them. Three reluctant talkers became absorbed and involved, calling out their ideas."

Nursery Teacher, Marsh Hill Nursery.
