Each storytelling session with Wendy captivates children and allows them to step into the tale with her. Wendy’s repertoire of folk tales, myths and legends leaves an imprint on each child during the storytelling day by:

  • developing confidence in sharing ideas with peers
  • widening vocabulary through listening and speaking
  • nurturing collaboration through group story making games
  • Sparking an interest in writing, reading or retelling a story
