Outdoor Projects

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

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.

Text or phone 07968 400144 to find out more

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.

- Jade, KS2
