Storytelling / Poetry Sessions

Our staff are very experienced at storytelling and are happy to come into school to carry out storytelling and/or poetry sessions with small groups or whole classes. We will tailor these sessions to suit your needs, so if you are focussing on a particular topic, or would just like a storytelling session - or assembly - to celebrate the pleasure of reading, contact us to discuss your requirements.

These sessions are always popular with pupils and teachers alike!. See what some of our customers say about SLS storytelling sessions.

 

Book Talks & Reader Development

An enthusiastic visitor who is passionate about books and reading can really motivate children to pick up a book. We can arrange to come into school and talk to your students about reading and books. We aim to make these sessions interactive and stimulating and can include quizzes and games to give the children a real buzz about reading and books.

Alternatively, you may be thinking of starting up a reading group or book group and we can offer advice on the best way to do this. We can also offer input to book and reading initiatives, such as World Book Day, National Poetry Day, Roald Dahl day and many more.

Our annual publication - Calendar of Book Awards and Display Ideas - A Month by Month Guide - is invaluable in helping you plan reading related activities throughout the school year. It is available free of charge to all schools with a Service Agreement. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for your copy.

Research & Library Skills

We can arrange to come into school to work with pupils on research and library skills. Once mastered, these skills will enable pupils to access information throughout their school lives and beyond.

We can also offer training for pupil librarians in first and primary schools. These sessions are always well received and give the children a sense of ownership of their library. Additionally, our publication, A Pupil Librarian Toolkit for School Libraries, is a step by step guide to training pupils to help run the school library.
