    This fun, interactive and informative course is about developing English skills for storytelling. Parents/carers will work with the children to develop a story from conception of the idea to the middle and the end of a great story that you will share with the group. This will allow children to develop confidence and skills in their individual style of telling a story. The teacher will be the guide through the course which will result in some fantastic stories.
