Event description
A Small Tale: A Teacher-Led Adventure is a brand new Punchdrunk Enrichment project designed to be led by the teacher in the classroom.

About this Event

Led by internationally-renowned theatre company Punchdrunk, this course aims to ignite and inspire a passion for writing whilst raising standards in reading, speaking and listening. The Project also aims to develop imaginative teaching practices for literacy; placing the teacher at the centre of the creativity.

The Project is aimed at primary school children in Waltham Forest in years 1 to 4 only.

Project narrative

● Intrigue begins as the teacher and their class read a mysterious old picture book about two mischievous tiny people with a love of stories, but when they return to the book the following day the pages are all blank, except for two sets of tiny footprints... and the class discover that the tiny characters have escaped from the book.

● The class will be tasked with tracing the characters’ movements around the school, discovering sock sleeping bags, stolen pencils and tiny tipis in trees where they have camped out.

● The only way to return the characters to the safety of the book’s pages is to write them a story

- and time is pressing as they are in danger out in the school.

Structure of project

● 1 day of CPD (6th November 2019) 9.30am to 3.30pm at Vestry House Museum
