Nuts & Bolts
I usually work for full days in schools, though a half day might be possible if you are local (I am based in the West Midlands)
A full day consists of 4 x 50/60 minute sessions with one class at a time
(max 35 - preferably less for Nursery) A half day is 2 x 50/60 min sessions
If you are a primary school without a Nursery, I am very happy to work with Year 3 for the fourth session ie Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3.
- What are the sessions like?
I like to work in a darkened hall, or a room that can be darkened. I bring fairy lights and lanterns to create a magical, focussed space in which creativity can thrive. The aim of the sessions is to fire imaginations and create story ideas. I will use stories, musical instruments, props, puppets and all kinds of other things to achieve this.
- What are your fees?
Please contact me via my CONTACT page to discuss this. I am surprisingly affordable, given my expertise and standing, so please ask! You WILL see results - I promise that. The children will be fired up. I offer a full money back guarantee if you are not delighted - but it has never been called upon in 25 years :-))
- How far will you travel?
I work nationally and internationally. I recently flew to a school in Germany to do just one day! But accommodation and travel costs might need to be added if you are more than 75 miles from B61 (Bromsgrove, Worcs) It benefits everyone if I can do 2+ schools when the booking is distant, so please talk to others in your cluster. They can share costs.
- Will you work with juniors too?
At the moment, I am working only up to Year 3 with these Wonder and Magic sessions. (See Gold! for my Year 3/4 workshop) But if you would like a full day, and have only two infant classes, I can easily do other story making/creative writing/performance work with your juniors. Let's chat!
