Talking Books is an early years project which encourages parents and young children to bring stories to life through play and making activities.
In February- March, we ran Talking Books for 4 weeks at Bygrove School to early years children and their parents.
Over the course of 4 sessions, Associate artists Tom Drayton and Hayley Konadu, delivered storytelling and theatre workshops for approximately 18 children and 10 adults. The sessions were aimed towards ESOL (English as a second language) and disabled children who needed a little extra support with literacy and to encourage their parents to support their children to continue learning at home.
We are currently fundraising to run an extended version of the project in nursery schools throughout London.
