The Wardrobe – Creative Literacy and Skill Building

Walk through The Wardrobe to a world of your own creation where the unbelievable becomes the believable.

The Wardrobe - Creative Storywriting With Props!The Wardrobe is a curriculum based literacy initiative, where pupils walk through a wardrobe to discover different costumes and props.

They will be asked to choose a costume and/or props to develop a character and then, as a group, working under the guidance of published Authors, begin to create a story and using extended writing skills finish the story individually or as part of a small group.

Each session is designed for young people to have fun whilst creating an individual piece of work, with the aim being for pupils to learn how to structure a story or a play in one full day.

The learning objectives for the day are to:

  • Develop literacy skills;
  • Develop problem solving skills;
  • Learn how to work as a team;

Relight-Ed is a not for profit Social Enterprise devoted to engaging children and young people in literacy.
