What's Story Circle?
Story Circle is a mythology & folklore after-school club. Gill Kirk, scriptwriter*, adapts tales from all over the world and shares them with the children.
She reads them, sometimes defends them, gets the children to talk about the themes, and helps them to come up with a creative response that suits them: drawing, making, feeling or talking!
Storytelling and story-listening are really important in helping us all in developing empathy, problem-solving, literacy and cultural understanding. It's also FUN!
