Speedy The Snail

EYFS, KS 1. Early Years, First Stage.

Ages 1 - 5

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW:  A story-based active-learning workshop for younger children lets them contribute to a story whilst acting out dialogue with movement and mime. 


We follow Speedy the Snail’s journey through the jungle and across a number of habitats. They also get to be up-close and hands-on with some ZooLab animals getting to compare the senses and textures and think about how different animals are adapted to different environments.

“Jack was great with the children. I like that he gave them clear rules to follow. The storybook was great and pitched at the right level for an EYFS class.”

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.
