Live Tales Story Writing Workshops For Key Stage 2 Classes @ The Fire Station, Sunderland

Entering the world of Live Tales allows teachers and children to explore creative writing from a new perspective. Through a mixture of drama and writing activities, your class will collaborate to create a completely original story. Each child continues the story individually and receives an illustrated storybook to complete at school.

Reluctant young writers and budding bards are inspired to go on a journey into their imaginations, exploring original thinking and discovering their voice as they write their own stories.

 A free resource pack, sent to teachers in advance, offers ideas for activities before and after a visit to Live Tales.

Live Tales sessions take place at the Live Tales Studio within The Fire Station in the centre of Sunderland, just across the road from the Bridges shopping centre (next door to the Empire Theatre). Built in 1907, the fire station reopened in 2017 as a music and arts hub.

Live Tales - teachers and pupils

"It's a really useful experience for them to write as a whole class and then go off to create their own individual stories, making them become the real author."
