World Book Day

From underwater worlds to Dickensian streets to the plays of William Shakespeare, Freshwater has enchanting workshops to bring long-loved literary worlds to life.

We offer storytelling across the whole curriculum, but our story hunts and quests are in particularly high demand around Book Day.

Our storytelling sessions improve key skills: 


Listening and Attention

reacting with relevant comments and actions


developing own narratives by connecting ideas

Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness

trying new activities; speaking in a group

This year World Book Day is on Thursday 5th March. Our workshops book up quickly for early March, so it is never too early to get in touch and make a booking. Contact us today.

Go down the rabbit hole to find Alice this World Book Day!

In our brand new Early Years Story Hunt, enter Wonderland to learn about some of the extraordinary characters who live there and find clues that Alice left behind.
