The Art of Storytelling -lifting the characters off the page.
Developing a love of reading through bringing stories to life, oral storytelling skills and puppetry to support storytelling. This exciting and engaging storyteller has worked at Natural History Museum, V&A and London Maritime museum after a career as a puppeteer. Specifically aimed at EYFS/KS1.
Judy Preece has worked in films and TV (The Muppets, Little Shop of Horrors and Labyrinth), now a renowned storyteller she has devised her own unique way of combining puppetry and storytelling to share aspects of the Science National Curriculum whilst in residence at the Natural History Museum.
Judy will share a variety of storytelling skills both with and without puppets and delve deeper into how we bring a story to life!
