Description

*********PLEASE NOTE UPDATED DATE FOR THIS TRAINING********After the success of our last KEYU members Network North East and Yorkshire training with Kym Scott, we have arranged some more training. The last training session was in Peterlee, but this time our day will be based at Wooler First School, about 1 hour drive north of Newcastle.

We are very excited to have secured Trisha Lee to lead a workshop ( using real live chidlren!) on story writing and acting. There will be also chance to have a look around our Nursery and Reception classes. We are a small rural school who moved in to an old building ( but on a new site) 3 years ago. We fully embrace child-led learning and make no apologies for that fact that we play all day long!

The Helicopter Stories approach, pioneered by Vivian Gussin Paley and championed in the UK by Trisha Lee, supported by Isla Hill and theatre and education charity MakeBelieve Arts, harnesses the power of storytelling to inspire powerful learning outcomes in key curriculum areas, such as Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and early compositional skills in Writing.

Why choose Helicopter Stories?

  • · It is an inclusive whole-class approach to learning that values every child’s contribution.
  • It engages creativity, boosts self- confidence and improves speaking and listening skills
  • It promotes collaborative learning in a supportive, safe environment
  • And it allows children to explore the power of words, forming a bridge into the world of writing


Please bring £15 cash if you would like to purchase a copy of the book.
