Fun Stories or something more?

The information below is about storytelling for schools, learning and education. If you want storytelling for entertainment and events, we suggest you see the Storytelling page and Carl's dedicated storyteller website.

For assembly, classroom or PTA events

You can book us for a straightforward storytelling session that can be used to provide additional variety to the school day or to commemorate special days or seasonal holidays. We can deliver to an assembly or in the classroom or even outdoors. This can also be a great addition to any school events you may be organising. Simply have a look at the storytelling page to see the range of set stories Carl specialises in.

The infinitely flexible world of Storytelling:

If you work with children you will already be aware of how well they respond to a well told story. But do you realise how storytelling can be extended into many more subject areas than just language or communication skills. As an experienced educator and teacher, Carl utilises his skills as a storyteller to help children approach subjects from a different angle. Therefore story becomes a platform to engage, leading into other interactive activities and discussion

The result is a greater understanding, appreciation and enthusiasm for a whole range of subjects such as history, culture, the environment, geography, science, design and even working with number! Storytelling is also an excellent tool for PSE and SEAL. 

Please be aware that we will happily provide you with additional information to highlight the appropriate curriculum links during a session (including curriculum cymreig for school in Wales). If there are particular aspects you'd like covered in a session then please let us know.
