  • We work with students in their usual classes or school hall.

  • Sessions are 50 - 90 minutes for KS2.

  • We can work with up to five KS2 classes in a day.

  • To work with fewer classes, we can visit for just an afternoon or morning session.

  • To work with more than six classes we can visit across multiple days.

  • We will send you a suggested timetable when you enquire, and we can work with you to create a timetable that works for your school day.

Story Maker: Creative Writing

Ms Amasser is a collector. But not just any collector. Ms Amasser is a collector of stories. For 50 years, she has travelled the world on her motorbike, with her battered little suitcase in a sidecar, collecting weird and wonderful tales from the people she has met along the way. These have been stories of adventure, horror, love; stories that make you laugh so much you cry, and some that make you cry so much you end up laughing!

 

On her last trip around the world she discovered something very sad - that grown ups have stopped telling stories! They all say that they are too busy for adventures, even though most of them just seem to spend their time looking at their phones.

 

Ms Amasser has decided to take action! She needs to find a new generation of storytellers and so has gathered you here to teach you the art of creating brilliant stories.

In this fabulously fun workshop, students are encouraged to invent and explore. They are led through a series of games and activities to help them to generate ideas, build on them and inspired to get them down onto the page.
