Hazel, willow, beef and storytelling from Bedfordshire


Outdoor storytelling workshops – from every adventure there is a story to tell…
Learning's better in the woods

Learning’s better in the woods

Jane can take classes on adventures in the school grounds or accompany a school to a local nature reserve, park, museum or woodland to see what stories are waiting to be discovered.

For Early Years & Key Stage 1, outdoor activities are based around traditional tales and are designed to develop imaginative thinking, speaking and listening skills. For Key Stage 2 workshops, Jane uses the local environment as the stimulus for children to use their imaginations in creating and retelling their own stories through imaginative games. Children can then use their ideas from the workshops to form the basis of further written composition back in the classroom.
