I devised interactive storytelling sessions for year 6 classes with the aim of igniting their imagination and enabling them to enact their own short dramatic pieces. In the process pupils gained a deeper understanding of Aztec mythology, enjoyment of the storytelling element and confidence in their own creative ability.

The sessions were delivered in the character of Nenetl, the last surviving member of an Aztec tribe. Children were invited to help influence and change the story as it was told, giving them the confidence to then dramatise the story in small groups.
