“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.  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 up to fifteen classes 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.

We are currently looking for classes to participate in A Small Tale for the first ever roll out in Scotland. If your school is interested in participating you can find details of how to apply on our Opportunities page.  If you need further information, you can contact Andrew Jeffrey.
