On Thursday 12th February 2015, MakeBelieve Arts will be awarding the UK’s fifth Helicopter Stories Centre of Excellence award to St Werburgh’s Park Nursery School, Bristol.

St. Werburgh’s Park Nursery School, funded by Bristol City Council since 1931,  has a long history of successfully teaching young children.  Every member of staff is qualified to work with young children and is passionate about children’s learning.

Helicopter Stories – Letting Imagination Fly is MakeBelieve Arts early years strand and it’s based on the pioneering Storytelling and Story Square work of Vivian Gussin Paley. The approach has been robustly evaluated by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

Story Square is a creative approach that supports learning across the early year’s curriculum, outlined by the government, and the evaluation is evidence of this.

One of the suggestions and outcomes of the evaluation was to award settings as Centre’s of Excellence in the approach.

These awards are given to those select Early Years settings that are regularly using Storytelling and Story Square and are able to share the benefits of the approach with neighbouring schools.

The presentation will start at 3.00pm with a short 15-minute demonstration of the approach followed by a presentation of the plaque by the MakeBelieve Arts Creative Director, Isla Hill.
