Story Explorers!


Story Explorers is a lively, interactive book group especially for children. Over a number of weeks children will read through an exciting book for their age group – exploring the book’s themes and characters as they read! 


This term, we are reading the fantastic 'Tilly and the Bookwanderers' by Anna James.  Tilly is lucky enough to meet some wonderful fictional characters, like Anne of Green Gables and Alice in Wonderland.  And we will be lucky enough to meet Anna James when she comes to Ilkley Literature Festival on 19th October.


As usual, some weeks we will be taking on the role of one or more Story Explorers (based on the 'Book Detectives' scheme devised by Aberdeenshire Council): Summariser, Illustrator, Opinion Spotter, Mind Mapper, Style Seeker and more! We will work alone, in pairs and in groups, on a variety of activities based around the book.


Story Explorers meet  Mayfield View Care Home, Ilkley on Saturdays during termtime.  Fees are just £6 per session!

Most Story Explorers are also Story Wizards! You can come to one of these groups or just one of them.
