Early Years Foundation Stage
(up to age 5)
All our Story Box bookings have been adapted to be Covid-safe.
Children join in from their places, and props and costumes are not shared - though ideas are!
As a small company, we are adaptable and flexible in these difficult times.
We will always discuss your booking in detail and tailor the visit to your venue, circumstances and audience.
'Pirates Ahoy' - a Pirate themed story making and story telling session held in a Museum garden this August. This session was for 10 families.
An exciting hour of dressing up, story-making, music and interactive story-telling.
Suitable for up to 30 children, aged 2-8 years.
Story Box is great for pre-school and Reception year children, helping to develop many EYFS key skills such as building confidence and self esteem, developing team work and cooperation, encouraging imaginative play and creativity, and practicing communication skills, speaking and listening.
The session is a wonderful creative input to topic work, and can be themed to suit your studies.
It can be a great way to break the ice at the start of a new term as everyone gets to know each other.
“Although we read stories to the children all the time, Story Box is so much more”
A Story Box hour starts with dressing up in our theatrical tabards. Who will you be?
Throw your ideas into the mix and enjoy creating and performing your own unique fairy tale.
Tune in for some action songs, and then enjoy interactive story telling to round it all off.
Choose from loads of Story Box tales, from round the world or on your doorstep, from timeless classics to modern yarns.
“The children have learnt the songs and become more interested in imaginative play”
Story Box is designed by a qualified teacher with the needs and desires of children firmly at its heart. So....its active and interactive, creative and child-led, can become noisy and off beat, and is always immensely good fun!
“a fantastic actor, he had all of the children engaged”
