World Book Day and Book Week

From the 26th February Freshwater Theatre Company gets intensely busy - we have already arranged 26 facilitators to visit 41 different schools in 4 different regions! Why are we so busy that week? It's World Book Day and Book Week of course!

We offer storytelling across the whole curriculum, but in particular our Story Seeker and Story Hunts are in high demand during book week.

Large Group Storytelling involves your children bringing to life three traditional tales as our storyteller plays with language, invites the children to take on a variety of roles and explores the morals of the stories presented. We offer three different sets of three, so you can always have something new.

  • The Ugly DucklingThe Princess & the Pea, and Thumbelina
  • The Cracked PotThe Fearsome Giant, and The Cedar Tree
  • The Pied PiperThe Cobblestone Maker, and The Lion & The Mouse

For Early Years we also have Story Hunts, on a variety of themes from Animals or Dinosaurs, to Pirates or Polar Regions. All these workshops are action-packed, sensory adventures, with children picking up clues in order to create a magical story together. Highly interactive, lots of fun and available to cover nearly twenty different topics. Story Hunts are already very busy in Book Week, but reserve your date for next year now?

We still have a small amount of availability for workshops celebrating your favourite stories and looking at the themes they cover. Venture under the sea to meet The Rainbow Fish or into the forest to hear all about The Gruffalo. So enquire now to book in some story time.

Did you know - we also do Modern Foreign Language Storytelling sessions? You do now! Listen to folk and fairytales in French or German, and work through popular stories interactively to improve language uptake!

However you choose to celebrate it, make your Book Week full of stories and let Freshwater know what you got up to!
