Request a story telling session at your school or nursery

We offer a 2 hour visit for nurseries, schools and children’s centres, which can be tailored to cover a number of different classes to suit your needs. A two hour session is £150.

What to expect from our story telling sessions:

  • An introduction to kamishibai and the history behind it.
  • A reading of The Gingerbread Man using kamishibai - this reading can be supported by the use of props or basic makaton.
  • For younger groups I follow up with some rhymes and a song.
  • For older groups I introduce some basic Japanese culture and language.

Each class visited gets a copy of our Planning Ideas Pack which is full of activities linked to the story.

You have the opportunity to buy your own copy of The Gingerbread Man with a 10% discount (valid for 6 months after the session).

Ideal for International Day, Culture Day, World Book Day and Book Week.

If you require a story telling session for a wedding, a children’s party or similar event, please email wendy@thesidlawhare.co.uk.
