Storyplay Miltonbank

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!

See what we’ve been getting up to in Miltonbank Storyplay!
