Our Early Years Story Hunts support learning goals by embedding the objectives in the structure and delivery of the session.
  • Listening and attention: children listen to stories anticipating key events; respond with relevant comments or actions.
  • Speaking: children show awareness of listeners' needs; they develop their own narratives by connecting ideas or events.
  • Moving and handling: children show good control and coordination; move confidently, safely negotiating the space.
  • Self-confidence and self-awareness: trying new activities; speaking in a group; responsible for resources and props.
  • Managing relationships and behaviour: working as part of a group, taking turns with others; follow instructions.


"The content was delivered in such an active and engaging way that the children didn't realise they were learning, they simply enjoyed the fun."

Sam Plummer, Endeavour Academy, Hyde
