We are delighted to be working in partnership with Punchdrunk Enrichment to bring A Small Tale: A Teacher-led Adventure to Scotland. A Small Tale is an exciting Punchdrunk Enrichment project for Primary 2-5 classes aiming to inspire and develop imaginative teaching practices for literacy; placing the teacher at the centre of the creativity.
In A Small Tale, the teacher and their class read an old picture book about two tiny characters (Abe and Alba) who disappear from the book the following day leaving the pages blank, except for tiny footprints… The pupils are then asked to help find them through writing tasks.
Each school will receive online training from Punchdrunk Enrichment as well as a box of props to help teachers recreate the magic in their school.

We are delivering A Small Tale in between February and April 2023, with a CPD session taking place on Friday 24th February.
