THEATRE IN EARLY YEARS EDUCATION

"Drama brings out so much communication and language from the children but also brings stories and topics to life for all types of learners. Children who are shy even thrive in these sessions as being a part of a whole group activity makes it easier for them to join in and get involved, rather than being put on the spot." 

Hannah Renfrew, Class Teacher, Park Hill School

Early Years children experience the world differently from the rest of us.  Whilst they're still developing their vocabulary, they use their other senses to absorb and help make sense of the world around them.  

At Story Storks, we've spent a lot of time making sure that our stories help to develop early language and literacy skills but we don't just bombard them with words.  They have the chance to interact with characters from their favourite fairy tales, count a giants gold, slay dragons and be the band at a wedding.

We come to you all year round, or you can come and see us when we're at the theatre!  

Unique

Child

Workshops are held by the class, maximising the opportunity for interaction, and allowing us to tailor our performance to the audience.  Our theatre show have something for every early years child to enjoy.

Enabling Environment

We use props, musical instruments, songs they know, songs they don't know, dance and puppetry to not just tell the story, but to immerse them in it. 

Positive Relationships

Our storytellers, all professional actors, become their favourite characters, and are experts in firing children's imagination.  

OUR STORIES

Our workshops are held at your school, by the class.
