Storytelling in Schools
Emily is currently working at Martello Primary School in Folkestone bringing some of the donated books for change to life! With a full covid safe working system, DBS check, experience working at the UK’s leading children’s theatre as well as years of activism and anti racism work, Emily can bring a new dimension to the classroom for all year groups from reception to year six.
Each year group has two set texts from the Books for Change catalogue and a bespoke hand crafted workshop to go with them.
Please get in touch using the contact page, you might already have some funding or might want to join up and apply for funding together, whatever your circumstance let’s start a conversation about how it might work for your school. We would love to hear from you.
Storytelling in the Community
Emily is currently resident storyteller at Holdfast Beach School, outdoor storytelling is high on the Books for Change agenda. We firmly believe that diversifying the countryside is vital work, taking Books for Change into the great outdoors and into the community is one of our favorite things – if you work with children and families in a community setting, a forest school or a farm school and are interested in diverse storytelling and workshops we would love to hear from you. Please use the contact page and let’s start a conversation. There has never been a time like now.
