Wendy Shearer is a London professional storyteller who performs folk tales, myths and legends in Primary Schools.

She has a full repertoire of stories for Primary Schools, Junior and Independent Schools.  Wendy retells tales to suit your curriculum topics or celebrations such as Black History Month workshops or  National Storytelling Week and World Book Day.

Using beautiful props and traditional music suited to the stories, Wendy also involves children in the storytelling. Children participate by acting out characters, retelling their own versions and weaving their ideas into the story that’s being told.

Wendy’s storytelling sessions support: creativity, communication skills, confidence, collaboration, literacy.

“Really imaginative storytelling.  You made all of the children feel involved with shaping the story” – Teacher at Derwentwater Primary School
