Helicopter Storytaking for Make Believe Arts
Planning, training & co-ordinating a team of facilitators to deliver workshops (led by myself) across East London nurseries and children's centres for Half Moon Young People's Theatre
A special story (possibly using a theme or a book) can be devised for your children which encourages them to listen and develops their imaginations and due to the interactive nature of the story it will also develop the following skills:
After a workshop a story corner will be created where the children can come and tell their stories to be recorded word for word and returned to the classroom for display, reading and performance.
