The Story Library is a free service archiving the stories of project participants by their date of attendance (or story submission) in three age groups:
Our team provides free support in spelling, punctuation and grammar for every story written.
By offering children and young people creative play options, we encourage them to imagine their own worlds – whether filled with magic carpets or flying robots.
To make learning fun and to encourage participants to tap into their creativity, we build emotionally significant links to the life of each writer.
Mature students are also benefiting from the simplicity of the story writing templates and report that the strategy helps them overcome writer's block and anxiety in their writing tasks.
The 'Help a Child Publish a Story' was initially funded by RBKC Arts in 2017-18. The Story Library is updated regularly every month. The project team continue delivering creative writing events and workshops at local libraries, schools and Canalside House since 2017. The aim of the Help a Child Publish a Story project was to develop an understanding of common elements within traditional stories and guide the participants to write their own stories.
Other services and resources:
In truth, all worries and anxiety about spelling, punctuation and grammar or numbers leave when we are learning how to write with creative play activities. Play, make something, tell a story and get it written with fun using our templates!
If numeracy is the topic, talk through problems and apply them to the world we live in. Talk about the solutions, practice and understand arithmetic with plenty of exercises, because we learn best with concrete and hands on examples.
So, why not teach and learn career awareness, literacy and numeracy and play and enjoy the process?
