The Gift Storytelling Workshop

Early Years & Key Stage 1

60 minutes, 13.00 – 14.00

30 pupils

Journey back hundreds of years to the Kingdom of Benin with our storyteller and our collection of Benin Bronzes. Our storytellers will create interactive play, developing speaking and listening skills with young pupils who adopt the roles of African Kings, Queens and explorers.  Pupils start to develop and appreciate African and Caribbean cultures traditions, dialect, and language structures when telling tales ‘from home’. Moral codes through proverbs are key messages that also feature for pupils to take back to the classroom and use in the everyday.
