Storytelling in Schools

 Alice is passionate about the use of stories as a creative and fun way of engaging young people with the world. Storytelling is a safe world through which children can express their thoughts, feelings, ideas and experiences. Oral storytelling in particular inspires children to engage with literacy, and view it from a refreshingly new perspective.

Alice can tailor a storytelling session to suit any curriculum topic. Sessions can be supplemented with a post performance workshop which is a great way for children to integrate the stories into their own work, and inspire them to read, tell and create their own stories.

Popular themes for primary schools include:

The Vikings

Ancient Egyptians

The Romans

The Celts

Ancient Greeks

Anti-bullying

Internet safety

Caring for the planet

Healthy Eating

Alice also specialises in storytelling performances and workshops for English language learners. To find out more view her page on EFL Storytelling.

NB. Alice is based in Edinburgh, Scotland. She is very happy to make long journeys for storytelling sessions. Travel expenses will be added to the fee for work outside Edinburgh.

Alice holds current PVG, and DBS certificates. She is also listed with The Scottish Directory of  Storytellers .
