Help us tell the biggest story the North Yorkshire Coast has ever heard.
Thank you so much for your support of Your Stories! We, the National Literacy Trust, have teamed up with the Stephen Joseph Theatre to run this story creation project for children aged 5—12 (or thereabouts!) across North Yorkshire. With a different theme every week, a team of expert creatives including a theatre director, illustrator, bestselling author and actor and poet are creating videos covering each part of story creation. Daily exercises and challenges invite children to submit their ideas, which will be combined into one giant story by our author and illustrator at the end of the six weeks.
You can find all challenges and exercises shared so far here.
Whether you’re taking part yourselves, or you’re encouraging other people to – please make sure that all their ideas are being submitted to us! Below are just a few of the ideas that came through from last week’s theme character – and the wonderful digital drawings that our illustrator created from them.
