The Best Teaching Method Known to Science for Knowledge-Rich Learning

The University of Bath, UCL’s Institute of Education, EU Lifelong Learning… They’ve all released studies over the last two decades proving that learners learn best when taught through storytelling.

Simply let us know the subject, topic, and/or goal of your day, and your storytelling author will come prepared to increase your learners’ excitement and enthusiasm for the knowledge involved.

Themed Storytelling Classes

Themed Story Days

Our team includes the original authors of the EU’s guidance on using storytelling in the classroom, so you’ll struggle to find anyone better to improve your learners’ attainment through storytelling. When tested in a controlled study for European Lifelong Learning, storytelling learners aged 10–11 performed 26% better on average in standardised tests than those taught using rote methods.

Example Themes

Here are just a few of the topics our storytelling authors have covered…

  • English: Shakespeare; Beowulf; punctuation; rhythm and rhyme; quotation marks; diary, report, and persuasive writing; editing…
  • Maths: percentages; decimals; fractions; multiplication and division; negative numbers…
  • Science: astronomy; evolution; earthquakes and volcanoes; light and sound…
  • History: Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome; Anglo-Saxons and Vikings; the Tudors; the Great Fire of London; the Industrial Revolution; Florence Nightingale; the World Wars…
  • Geography: the oceans; the Arctic; the Caribbean; Australia; China; Africa…
  • Religion: Christmas; Christianity; Judaism; Hinduism; Islam…

…and much, much more.

Let us boost your learners' appetite for learning in a way that's fun, memorable, and effective.

If your theme is shared across two or more classes, we recommend your storytelling author meets as many of your learners as possible in an opening assembly. Not only does this allow them to enthuse your whole school about the day ahead, it removes the need for introductions in later breakaway sessions.

With breakaway sessions of 30–55 minutes for up to 90 learners each, your author will share stories with strong links to the theme, helping your learners to engage rapidly and thoroughly with the theme.

With breakaway sessions of 60+ minutes for up to 40 learners each, your author will guide your learners through fun and exciting activities designed to ignite an eager interest in learning more, whilst also imparting swathes of knowledge-rich content.

Either way, your complimentary after-school CPD will focus on skills and activities your educators can use to further support learning on the theme around your school, and your author will leave you with a complimentary copy of All the Better to Teach You With: Stories & Lessons to Inspire Learning with Pleasure.
