Sadly, due to the Government advice regarding limiting social interactions to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, Story Explorers has been cancelled until further notice. We are currently exploring ways to provide activities digitally. 

Exciting group for children in Year 4 to Year 7 who love reading and writing stories

Story Explorers is an interactive book group and writing group especially for children. Over a number of weeks children will work through an exciting book for their age group with group leader Sandra Flitcroft – exploring the book’s themes and characters as they read! Each week the group will also try out fun ways to write their own stories and poems with creative writing games and top tips.


Some testimonals from parents:

"I would like to thank Sandra and the whole team behind Story Explorers. It is a great group which really encourages and inspires young
people in reading, writing, art and imagination."

"All 3 of my children love the sessions with Sandra and look forward to it every week."
