Students from Evesham College had a captive audience as they held a storytelling session for children at Evesham Nursery School.

The students, who are all in the second year of their Level 3 Early Years Educator course, chose the books – Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson and Where’s My Teddy by Jez Alborough – and devised the sessions which included props, movement and songs for the nursery children.  

Deanna Burdett, 17 from Evesham was one of the students involved. She said, “We have carried out maths workshops previously, but this is the first literacy activity we’ve created. We worked together in groups, making the props and planning how we would tell the story as it’s all part of the course around making activity plans. It went really well – the children listened and joined in and had a lot of fun.”

Julie Mayo, lecturer in Early Years said, “I’m very proud of how the students did today. The project has involved a lot of teamwork – a real collaboration – and has built their confidence and consolidated their learning. Thanks to the nursery children and staff for letting us come in – the children really seemed to enjoy it which is the main thing.”
