What is the single most effective way of teaching everything, from history to creative writing, from diversity to science?

It is a fact, often forgotten, that everything that we know and everything that we learn ultimately is learned as a story.

How people in different parts of the world live.  How people in different countries have different ways of celebrating Christmas.

How they have their own stories associated with their past.  How England is actually just coming up to its 1000th birthday.   How our understanding of the world has changed across time.

How Galileo Galilei (then professor of mathematics at the University of Pisa) is said to have dropped two spheres of different masses from the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Everything comes back to stories.  And this is why, as part of their learning, it is vital that children listen to stories told by expert professional storytellers.

We have stories covering almost every aspect of the primary school curriculum and childhood development.

You can find out more about a few of our story themes at www.snailtales.org/stories, but please do remember that there are many more available.  If you have a story that you would like to see explored, please do drop us a line and let us know, and we’ll come back to you and tell you what we can do.

There’s no obligation – we are happy to share our ideas with you. And if you are looking for a theme that we have not explored before, we would be delighted to see if we could develop a storytelling day or half day in your school on that particular theme.

You can select from one of our existing themes by clicking here, or ask us to pencil you into our diary by completing our online booking form.

Or, if you want to explore a different theme – without any obligation please do:

We look forward to hearing from you
