Kingsley and Co is a project of Ykids. Ykids have been working in the community and schools for 17 years. We have run projects and events of many different types. For more information about what we do, visit our website.
As we want children to love stories, adventure and reading, we know that working with schools is a great way of achieving this. There are many things that we are able to offer your school.
Christchurch Primary School
Wonderful to welcome Kat, the storykeeper from
@KingsleyandCo_ to our KS1 bubble. The children were enthralled by her action packed Christmas story. Please support the bookshop in The Strand which reopens today.
Get in Touch
Our Story Keeper, Debs, will be in touch with you about your enquiries. We look forward to hearing from you!
Visits to the shop
Come and visit our magical book shop and discover its many secrets. Have a session in our hidden submarine classroom and explore the rest of the shop with our interactive quiz.
In development – Giant Slayers
Giant Slayers is a Ykids programme to help children to deal with their worries and anxieties. It is designed to give children the strategies they need to face anything that comes their way.
We offer fun, interactive story assemblies.
In development – Reading for pleasure Scheme
We are currently designing a remote reading scheme which pairs children who are disengaged with reading with a trained volunteer to read together.
Story/history sessions based around Bootle
Bootle has a very rich story of its own. We have sessions to teach what happened in this area in the past including: Vikings, Victorians, The World Wars and more.
Story-based, well-being workshops in classroom
Our workshops are a way of getting children involved with stories and adventure. The stories chosen will have a message of well-being to share with the children as well.
We have run Children’s Literary festivals in the past with amazing success. With guest authors, assemblies, workshops, performances and more there is plenty for your school to get involved with. For more information see our events page.
Faith- based workshops/ assemblies
The bible has many stories to tell. We offer faith-based workshops and assemblies on a range of different topics.
