A place for all ages to share stories that capture your imagination and do fun activities that are linked to them in a relaxed community cafe environment.
Looking for an after school club where your children can read and be read to whilst taking part in fun story based activities?
Everyone loves a great story. Why not come along to these fun and playful Story Box sessions where you can read to your neighbours, listen to others of all ages reading to you as well as taking part in imaginative activities that are linked to the story. There will be free soft drinks, tea and coffee on hand.
There are two Story Box projects, one at 116 Church Elm Lane, Dagenham and the other at 55 Ripple Road, Barking > each run by a different group of parents, inspired by Zoe's project in Dagenham. Each project is created differently by the people involved!
About the project starters
Zoe is a local mum who started the idea of Story Box as she wanted to be involved in creating more things to do for all ages in her area.
Roseann has lived in Barking and Dagenham for over 20 years, moving here from California. She is a home educating parent who loves telling and reading stories and poetry.
Catia has studied and worked with children in educational settings. She homeschools her three children, and has found fun ways of teaching through play. Catia will share some of the activities she and her children found along the way.
Would you like to get involved with this too?
