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 through a mixture of drama and writing activities. Your class will collaborate to create a completely original story and each child continues the story individually, receiving an illustrated storybook to complete at school.
Children's imaginations start whizzing with wonderful ideas and even reluctant young writers embrace their creativity and craft a fantastic story.
A free resource pack, sent to teachers in advance, offers ideas for activities before and after a visit to Live Tales. Sessions take place in 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.
