Enriching The Curriculum And Supporting Literacy Through Storytelling
The Christmas Elves and The Shoemaker
NEW! A festive retelling of this favourite fairytale is touring schools from 18 November.
Suitable for Early Years and KS1, this performance will delight and enthrall children and teachers alike.
It can be booked on its own or as part of a full school day alongside Chris Connaughton's other stories and workshops.
Simply call or go to the contact page here to secure a date for your school.
PRICE DROP! Because school budgets are so tight this year, Chris is offering a discounted cost of just £230 for a full day's visit leading up to the Christmas period in the following regions:
28, 29, 30 November - London and Kent
1, 2, 5, 6 December - Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Surrey
12, 13, 14 December - Yorkshire and North East
A full day can include up to 5 storytelling sessions and/or workshops so there's plenty of time for every child (and teacher!) throughout school.
Ring Chris on 07718 048904 for more details.
OUT NOW! Chris Connaughton has written a chapter for the new Tiny Voices Talk book. Available from Crown House Publishing, it includes advice, ideas and practical teaching approaches from a variety of educators.
