The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich wanted to replace their Key Stage 1+2 story-house sessions in the Queen’s House. They were looking to move away from work sheets and instead create a unique, memorable, interactive session based around traditional oral storytelling.
We were approached and asked to bid for the creation and delivery, on a weekly basis, of the new sessions.
We wrote an original story suitable for each key stage, based on historical characters and details surrounding the Queen’s House. We then devised activities that would take place within the stories, which would make the audience responsible for delivering a happy ending
To ensure the sustainability of the project, rather than delivering the story-house sessions ourselves, we trained the education team to be able to tell the stories and facilitate the activities themselves. There was also the added bonus of being able to transfer the storytelling skills provide in the training, to other areas of their work at the National Maritime Museum.
