In the Autumn Story Play held a programme of six sessions for the under 5s and their parents & carers in the Museum on Broad Street. There were poems, rhymes and stories based on things we could see around us; the bees in their glass-panelled hive, beautiful buttons, interesting hats, bells and lots of farming pictures and implements. After ‘Story Time’ came a simple craft activity and the chance to chat or explore. It was a great way to introduce young children to the Museum and to encourage them to become familiar with the exhibits and the layout. I enjoyed getting to know everyone and we had a lot of fun over the weeks. Thanks to all involved- the children and families, the Museum staff and volunteers, and the Early Years team that accompanied children from a local nursery who walked across town (and back) to join us.
“Fantastic Storytelling…” “…hold’s the children’s attention really well.” “I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions.”
