PRIMARY-SPECIFIC OFFERS Lyrici Arts Project Name Out of the Box CPD About the Project Lyrici Arts was founded in 2016 and is a Kent based organisation which works in partnership with local organisations and authorities to address Black Minority Ethnic (BME) diversity inclusion via arts programming. The name Lyrici means 'of Literature, Art or Music - expressing the writer's emotions in an imaginative and beautiful way'. Our remits include festivals and community events, theatre shows and professional development. This Out of the Box CPD workshop session is led by Olusola Oyeleye - an award-winning writer, director and producer working in opera, music theatre, visual arts and dance. Over 90 minutes you will review how storytelling themes can feed into the curriculum and lesson planning. Teachers will be given a storytelling resource box which has a selection of tactile objects from different cultures around the African continent and items with universal cultural contexts. The box dimensions are 65x70cm and the range of items that classes can use to tell cultural stories include: African prints, masks, costumes, shells and a traditional broom. There are also smaller items such as corals, stones, feathers and more. The facilitator Olusola will show teachers how to use the resources to develop written, physical and oral skills in the classroom. Teachers will then be equipped with the tools and knowledge to create drama activities with students and support them to use the resources as inspiration to write stories, poetry or prose of their own. You will work on developing new skills to work with students and reluctant writers, aiding them with KS1 and KS2 curriculum outcomes to develop public speaking, performance skills and raise self-esteem. Suitability Teachers of KS1-2. Dates, Location & Format Monday 4 February 2018, 16:00-18:00, High House Production Park, Purfleet. 64

Teachers will learn about a range of different narrative structures and have the knowledge to think of different ways to start stories including call and response methods, and participatory stories with rhymes that children can repeat. Teachers will have the confidence to read to students and peers in an animated way, using objects and books to make the storytelling participatory and an active learning process.
