Outdoor Projects

Stories help pupils see places in different ways and having the countryside as a backdrop brings stories to life.

around Oswestry Hillfort "It's hard to think of anything to improve the
visits" - Mr R, Key Stage 2 teacher

"I thought lots of stuff, I mean I could see the
story happening. I felt a bit scared, with the
mud being slippy, and excited." - Jade, KS2

"The project has made a much broader impact on the children than we anticipated."
- Jo, project co-ordinator

"Thank you for taking us on this wonderful
adventure." - Kirsty, Key Stage 2 pupil

We offer storywalks in some of our favourite Shropshire places: Ellesmere, Colemere, Nesscliffe, Haughmond Hill, The Stiperstones or Oswestry Hillfort/Whittington Castle.*

Or we'd be happy to devise a storywalk from your school gate - be it in a countryside setting or urban environment - and then work with your class to create their own site-specific story**.

Two storytellers will work with one class. The class teacher should come too, together with adult supervisors in accordance with your school's health & safety policy.

Cost per day 300.00 + travel

Cost per half day 180.00 + travel

Please Note:
* Whittington Castle will levy an additional 50 charge for use of their facilities.
** For your individual school storywalk we would need an additional day researching the walk and preparing the necessary Health & Safety risk assessment.

"You bought a lot of experience to our planning sessions and were able to offer ideas and respond positively to the school's and library staff's ideas." - Jo, project co-ordinator
