Live Tales 2021/2022 - FREE Workshops for Key Stage 2 Classes In Person or Online

Live Tales is back, in-person, at Live Theatre for the 21/22 academic year!

We are pleased to offer our original Live Tales Story Writing Workshop for schools who want to visit us in person whilst also continuing to offer Live Tales Play Makers online for Key Stage 2 classes.

And all for FREE!

Live Tales Story Writing Workshop (2hrs) gives your pupils the chance to create an original story with brand new characters that are illustrated live as the children create them. Every child leaves with their illustrated story to inspire them to carry on writing at school or at home.

Workshops take place at our studios in Newcastle, just behind Live Theatre or in Sunderland at The Fire Station, High Street West, SR1 3HA.

Live Tales Play Makers (1.5hrs) introduces the class to story and script writing in a playful online workshop, using games to look at characters, storytelling and dialogue.

Both workshops are ideal for classes and teachers looking for a new creative experience and can help your class through:

· Working as a team to tell stories.

· Building resilience and self-confidence by sharing creative ideas.

· Developing English speaking and listening.

We are offering five slots a week until the end of term, at the following times:

Live Tales Play Makers (online) Tuesdays 10am – 11.30am

Live Tales Play Makers (online) Wednesdays 1pm – 2.30pm

Feedback from Live Tales Play Maker Online Session

"The children loved the session and asked if they could carry on with another 'Yes And' story.   They then set themselves a challenge to create a whole class version.  They had to go round everyone before lunch to complete the tale.  They were still talking about it well into the afternoon.  Thanks again for the session it was excellent."
Mr Boyle, Y5 teacher, St Mary's Catholic Primary School, Southmoor

Feedback from teachers

"We have had an amazing morning - a whole half term's worth in 90 minutes!  The children had a great time!"
Mrs Howe, St Alban's Primary School, Gateshead

“It was lovely to be able to give them the freedom to come up with anything they liked in their stories - I will definitely be stealing some of those ideas!”
Ms Evans, Greenfields Community Primary School, Newcastle.
