Story and Non-History Topics

“Effective communication skills are fundamental skills for life. They can have the most profound and positive impact on our lives” - The Communication Trust 2012.  


What is ExploraBox Story?


Story sessions are for any age group and are based on a quality picture book. They can fit with your topic (such as Superheroes, Minibeasts or Dinosaurs for example - I have a long, ever-growing list! Contact me for a current list or to check if I can match your topic). Vocabulary, confidence, sound, reading, motor skills, mathematical skills (such as comparison and number) and speaking & listening skills are all developed whilst the children have fun using all the exciting resources which emerge from the ExploraBox. There are always enough puppets, props and resources for everyone to be involved. Big pieces of material swoop out of the box to become the sea, mud, boats or flying carpets, and everyone is invited to come along on the learning adventure.


Sessions use varied learning styles and provide brilliant assessment opportunities for staff, as you can make observations of the children during their exploring. At the end of each session I leave you with ideas for related activities and further reading. Free taster sessions are available within a certain radius – just contact me to check whether I can provide this for you.
