Miltonbank Primary is a Storyplay School.
This term Miltonbank is working with children’s theatre and drama-led play specialists Licketyspit on Storyplay. Storyplay is about everyone in the school community sharing stories, games, rhymes, songs and imaginary play activities, to develop an inclusive, imaginative, confident culture full of language. Storyplay develops children’s confidence, social skills and literacy, as well as developing friendships and creativity.
Your children can share their Storyplay experiences with the whole family and we’d love to hear from you they have taught you to play our Lickety Playcard games.
The wonderful thing about having children is that we have a reason to play and play is great for all of us, whatever our age! There will be a Storyplay Celebration Assembly and Art & Story Exhibition later this term. You will see our team around the school in our stripy tops. Do come and say hello!

This is the Miltonbank Storyplay blog page, where we will be sharing photos (with your permission), drawings, stories and children’s comments! We would like to take photos in our Storyplay sessions to share and celebrate the children’s achievements.

If you haven’t already, please join our Children & Families Network (CFN) to receive invitations to our free drama-led play & social food sessions in the community (Porridge & Play) and in galleries, museums and parks (Picnic & Play) and CFN Trips to around Glasggow.

The CFN is a big community of families across Glasgow and Scotland with children under-twelve, who all know Licketyspit. We love to get feedback and images of children’s drawings inspired by Lickety Play – and we will always write back!
