INSET & CPD in Creative Storytelling for Early Years and Primary

DragonBird Theatre offers practical and engaging CPD workshops for Early Years and Primary practitioners.  Our sessions build confidence in practitioners in delivering playful, creative and/or theatrical storytelling.


Understanding that “55% of communication is body language, 38% of communication is voice and 7% is actually the words.” (Psychology Today) DragonBird Theatre impart simple techniques that focus on the use and development of voice, body language and simple props to lift the story off the page.

These workshops will consider your practice and all your children’s needs whilst providing a supported space for practitioners to creatively engage, have fun and fully realise the benefit and legacy of enhanced storytelling.

any ideas regarding CPD further.

Just wanted to send a massive thank you for yesterday's session. It really was fantastic.

The staff are buzzing and have actively come to me and Lucy throughout the morning to tell us how much they enjoyed it and have taken ideas from it.

You have really opened their eyes to what storytelling can be and they are so excited by this. They found your delivery infectious and genuine, they feel there are so many possibilities and they have the tools and capability to deliver this to their children.

Exactly what we were hoping to be achieved from the session.

Amazing! Exciting to put into practice. Lots of new ideas. Great ideas. Fun, Inspiring and consolidating. Motivating and lively. Never too old to play!


"I hope that the staff will be able to use the knowledge and expertise gained from the session as a resource in their future practice. I look forward to working with you again in the future."
