Could the legends be true? Are the mythical scaled creatures merely a myth or did dragons really exist? Join Seven Stories on a journey of discovery and delve into the science of dragons. Together with their team of Story Catchers, students will research and collect evidence to prove the theory that dragons could be real. Using a range of materials and texts they’ll look at myths from around the world, other cultures and local folklore – as nearby as the Lambton Worm – to discover the truth!

Seven Stories understand that early years education is the foundation of a child’s future development. It is in these formative years that a lifelong love of learning is developed and nurtured. Seven Stories is here to support teachers and educators by developing an educational programme that not only encourages a love of reading but supports critical thinking, personal, social and emotional development and communication and language skills. Seven Stories will help to build confidence, resilience and perseverance using a range of different texts, both fiction and non-fiction, role-play, rhymes and poems.

About Seven Stories.

Matilda The Musical Logo

Seven Stories is the National Centre for Children’s Books. They work with schools in many ways including school trips, book subscriptions, author and illustrator visits (digital or in-person), facsimile hire, visits or residencies from their team, and joint projects and research.

Seven Stories schools trips are 2 hour sessions with one hour in their unique gallery spaces and a one hour workshop with their dynamic Story Catcher team. Your group will take part in an interactive and imaginative led-tour of their exhibition where children will go on a sensory and immersive journey, followed by a workshop inspired by one of the books featured in the gallery. The sessions are all linked to the theory that there are seven basic plot types.

They can tailor school trips to a particular book or theme for additional cost.
