EYFS, KS 1. Early Years, First Stage.
Ages 3 - 7

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW:  This egg-citing storybook egg-stravaganza follows our lead character, Jane, on a chocolate egg hunt. Along the way, she asks the farm animals have they seen her chocolate egg? She spies a series of eggs - could they be her chocolate prize? Perhaps they belong to some of ZooLab’s amazing animal team? If they do, we learn to leave them alone and let them hatch out.

Using story, rhyme and repetition, we reinforce key messages about sharing, friendship and most importantly protecting nature. We bring this tale to life, adding an extra dimension and sense of excitement through our live animal interaction.

Key Workshop Objectives:

  • Identifying animals that come from eggs

    of different animals

  • Reinforce messaging about protecting nature

  • Encourage listening, participation and imagination

Why learn through storytelling?

Using storytelling as a mechanism in teaching involves structuring learning around a narrative. It helps children (and adults) make sense of issues and topics by engaging them in a story, making facts easier to remember and participants more open to learning.

The benefits of learning through storytelling does not stop at increasing knowledge of the subject area - storytelling encourages creativity, expands vocabulary, increases attention span and helps to reinforce morals.
