A visit to your school or library
"Margaret Bateson-Hill is an inspiration!
Her extraordinary storytelling is a combination of magical transportation and practical organisation... she weaves a web of stories filled with stimulating images and vocabulary that the children love to explore and use.

I am very happy to do all-school assemblies in a primary school setting - usually an interactive folk tale to get the day off to a flying start.
I will devise a specific assembly/ talk or workshop for a school. The workshops mentioned below give a flavour of what I can offer.
Sessions are 40-60 minutes long (or as long as you’ll give me.)
Nursery / Reception
I am very happy to work with your nursery and foundation classes using either Five Little Ducks went out one day or This Little Piggy , both interactive, lift the flap, extended retellings of the popular rhymes.
•I offer follow up craft and story activities
•I also tell interactive traditional tales from around the world.
Storytelling of book – Lao Lao of Dragon Mountain or Masha and the Firebird
•With follow up creative writing and/ or craft based on the Folk Tale series
You made it so magical no one could take their eyes off you!
Sybilla year 6
Workshop based on the Dragon Racer series including an author talk and setting up a piece of creative writing.
•Discover your own secret self!
•Ever wanted to fly a racing dragon? Create your own dragon and tell the tale of the day you met.
You really convinced us that if you take a closer look at things there just might be a dragon on your shoulder.
