Trevithick is a Storytelling School, the first in the country. We have developed a powerful and effective writing curriculum using Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk for Writing’ approach to teach fiction, non-fiction & poetry. Our effective method is successfully embedded across all year groups. Our curriculum has not only accelerated pupil progress and raised standards, but most importantly released creativity, improved confidence and changed our children’s perception of themselves as writers.
Storytelling lies at the heart of our approach. We immerse our children in story and language throughout our school. All of our wonderful classrooms have creative storytelling areas with storytelling chairs, props and costumes.
