The Story Room is passionate about inspiring young people to read and write.  Our relaxed approach nurtures and inspires young writers to develop their writing skills and to think creatively. Whether your child struggles to write their ideas down on the page or are confident writers, The Story Room has something for everyone!  Children of all abilities are welcome.

Our aims:

  • Improve your child’s literacy skills (oral and written)
  • Boost your child’s self-esteem and confidence
  • Share our passion for reading/encourage children to read
  • Promote a love of writing
  • For your child to have fun!

Each Saturday we write stories and poems in line with the theme of the day.  We introduce the children to different styles of  literature during each session,  including classic texts, poetry and contemporary children’s books. We have fun exploring our imaginations and getting the children’s ideas down on paper.

BOOKINGS: Our workshops are bookable in advance but  please note that your child does not have to commit to coming to every session (unless they are booking the Wild About Books – that is bookable in a block).

How many in group? A maximum of 10 children.    Age group? 7-11 year olds.   Fee: £27.50 per session (or £97.50 for 3 sessions of Wild About Books)

At the Story Room we are Wild About Books! These workshops are bookable as a block of four. Over that period your child will read one book (we supply the books). They will discuss the book, do creative writing tasks based it, and vocabulary and comprehension exercises to help develop their understanding of what they are reading. There may even be the opportunity to dress up and re-enact parts of the story! Each session will lead your child to a deeper appreciation of the story and the characters.
