“I had pages of writing from children who usually struggle to put pen to paper.” 

—Year 3 Teacher, 2016

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Punchdrunk Enrichment to bring A Small Tale:A Teacher-led Advenutre to Scotland in the Spring term 2019.  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.

The project will work with a range of schools in Edinburgh and Aberdeen who will receive a CLPL training day from Punchdrunk Enrichment, support from Imaginate throughout the project and a post-project twilight session to evaluate the experience.  

You can read more about A Small Tale including a downloadable teacher pack on the Punchdrunk Enrichment project page.
