Literary Tours of Cambridge - a wonderfully, interesting way to explore Cambridge

Magic and Motivation

  1. Puss in Boots - a wonderful children's tale, delivered by Cambridge Literature Tours

    For Primary Schools– one hour, interactive, theatre-in-the-round sessions. We tell stories to support Primary Modern Foreign Language development. Children learn and practice their French and Spanish whilst participating in a folk story.  Each session offers scope for cross-curricular preparation and development. Choose from:

    • Puss In Boots:  The Classic Tale with a French Twist…
    • Half-Chick High-Jinks: Spanish surprises for a Chick with Altitude?
  2. For TEFL sessions – one-hour, participative performances of regional folk stories from close-to-original sources but providing Vocabulary and Grammar support and visual clues for Idiom.  Opportunities to Speak and Listen appropriately – as well as enjoying a level of entertainment as added-value language-enrichment.  Beginner to Upper Intermediate/Advanced.
  3. For Children and Adults with Disabilities – traditional folk-stories from across Britain which encourage enjoyment, participation and artefact-handling.  Music, mime and dance potential as part of a total-communication strategy. Can be presented with some Makaton.

Storyteller Angela Brown draws on a huge range of British, European and World folk stories – as well as myths and faith stories.   Recent work:

  • Greek Myths for  BBC Starwatch initiative at Flag Fen
  • International Summer School language-enrichment for TEFL students with interactive East Anglian folk-tales
  • Unpacking Easter’activities for:
    • A Fen-Edge parish church;
    • Cathedral schools-days;
