Speech & Language Consultant, Keynote speaker & Storyteller extraordinaire, Michael Jones, decided to make himself – and his services – first prize in a raffle at the Stafford Early Years conference recently.

And after taking part in Sarah’s ‘Ready Steady Drum!’ session at the conference, he decided a collaboration with Drumvoice would be even better!

Churchfield CE Junior School in Rugeley were delighted to win a day of specialist training from Michael and Drumvoice on exciting ways to stimulate language development in their children.

Michael will share his innovative ideas on making the most of storytelling, giving children lots of practical playtime around the themes of the African story before it even begins.

Meanwhile, Sarah will show staff rhythm & rhyme activities to reinforce the language and ideas in the story, using the famous ‘washing up bowl’ drums.

And the grand finale? An exciting African Drumming extravaganza for the staff of Churchfield and neighbouring schools! Sarah will demonstrate the power of drumming to draw people – big and little! – together and improve communication.
