Helicopter at Home

The Family Learning Project, funded by The Royal Opera House Bridge, started this term, in Kent. The project will train parents how to use the Helicopter Technique of Storytelling and Story Acting at home.

Parents listen to their children’s stories, write them down, record them on their phones...

In Phase One funded by Every Child a Talker, MakeBelieve Arts worked with 18 nurseries across Kent, training the staff how to use the technique in their settings.

Phase Two sees MakeBelieve Arts working with the parents of those children, encouraging them to try out the technique at home. Eagar parents set off from sessions pen, paper and phone in hand in search of their children’s stories.
