‘Stories were told in an engaging way which captivated children.’
Grewelthorpe Primary School

‘The children absolutely loved it! The fact that that were all silent, eyes upon you speaks for itself. There were lots of learning points; how to tell a story, make it come to life with body movement, changes of voices and props. The children can impart this into their own creative writing, drama sessions etc.’
– Caroline Miles, Oaks Primary Academy

‘The children were very engaged throughout the workshop. They enjoyed being creative and using their imagination to come up with their own stories. Imaginative, fun approach to speaking and listening, vocabulary building and storytelling.’
Somerville Primary School

‘Helen was superb! The feedback from my class was fantastic and having spoken to the other class teachers and children too they all really enjoyed it! We are a storytelling school and the way in which she acted out her stories and used music and props was inspiring for us all.’
Church Cowley St James Cof E Primary school

‘Helen was wonderful with the children and delivered an excellent Beatrix Potter Workshop’.

– Amanda Graham, Petham Primary School

“The older children told me that they loved the interactive shadow puppet performance – especially when they had made their own puppets”

“‘It was a pleasure working with Helen at our Summer Fair. She had a great rapport with the children and produced well thought out and researched stories, suitable for a range of age groups. I would highly recommend her for storytelling activities, and can’t wait for her to come back and do more sessions at THCP’’”
– Tess Pettinger, Friends Of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

“We all loved having you with us and the younger children were able to spend a great deal more time than I had anticipated working on their crowns – you kept them focussed for ages. They were so proud of their crowns!”
– Helen Harris, CATS Young People’s Project Maidenhead

“Helen effectively planned and resourced each session so that the day ran smoothly with no assistance needed from the teachers. I have no hesitation in recommending Helen to Junior Schools; her story telling sessions would lend themselves to any topic and they are a perfect stimulus to kick-start a topic and likewise a fantastic ending to a topic.”
– Mrs Kember – Assistant Head and Head of Year Six of St. Margaret’s Junior School, Rainham

“Helen is an enthusiastic storyteller who weaves together inspiration from the natural world with elements from her imagination to create engaging stories for a pre-school audience. The use of songs and movements helps her to keep the attention of her young listeners.”
– Beth Barber, Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses

“Our children are not always the easiest to work with, but they really responded to you. I think the use of a few simple props worked very well – they seemed to enable the the kids to take on the story and play with it, engaging their own imaginations, which is a real achievement with autistic children.”
– Candida Miles, Administrator at SIGNAL Family Support

“Helen’s activities were captivating and all children were fully engaged throughout the whole session. The session linked perfectly to our topic and the acted story was incredibly well presented and helped to further advanced the children’s understanding of Aztec beliefs.”
– E.Malyon (Literacy Co-ordinator)

“From her entrance as a brave aviator travelling the world to collect stories to the very end of each session she offered in our school, Helen had the children enthralled. Her stories were fun, diverse, and encouraged all the kids to move, sing, and act out with her.
She adjusted to different circumstances, and age groups beautifully, and was very sensitive to our needs from the very beginning. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional, passionate, and patient storyteller.”
– Delphine Benezet, Churchfields Primary School PTA, Beckenham
