Storytelling Residency


 Communication and Language Development.

Age Group: 3-7

A Play House storyteller will work with small groups of children over the day to co-create shared stories together. The story created is 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.  


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

  • Communication and Language.

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development.

  • Literacy. 

  • Expressive Arts.

 Outcomes / Children Will: 

  • Explore communication and language.

  • Problem solve using creative and imaginative skills.

  • Build confidence, self-regulation and social skills.

"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.
