Course overview

The Story Box course gives parents/carers time to be taught on their own for part of the session and then the children join them to work together. Parents develop ideas that can be used to support their child's joy of reading and creativity at home. The sessions are very informal, with many activities to do together which are designed to be interesting and fun to inspire both parent and child to get the most out of story tellling. The tutor works in conjunction with the setting's own curriculum and the school are very interested in developing a bank of story boxes for the children to use in school. Tutors will encourage parents to discuss their own experiences of English at school and to look at developing their own English skills to keep up with their children. There are opportunities for parents to move on to work towards their own English qualification in the community as well.
