Adventures Everywhere! storytelling workshop, July 2011

"Learning Outside The Classroom" courses with the Peak District National Park

ADVENTURES EVERYWHERE – 22nd March 2012, Moorland Discovery Centre, Longshaw Estate nr Hathersage

Step out of the classroom and into a world where everything around us is having adventures. The processes and patterns of nature, the lives of animals and plants, all offer rich inspirations for new poems and wild stories
Looking for Adventures Everywhere, during the afternoon we will:
• shape communal poems out of special moments and memories

• work outside building our own storywalk: with activities that could work either joined together to create a whole experience or that might stand alone as individual exercises: atmosphere poems, riddles, animal diaries and wildlife characters

• make laced-up books drawing all these earlier activities together
• end with a quick story-telling session, sharing our new poems and stories
All courses run from 1:30 -5:30pm and cost £70. If your school books more than one of any of our charged for courses you will receive a 20% discount on all courses.
