We Love Words

Led by Jess, Artistic Director of The Bookworm Players. This session explores the history of words, both written and spoken.

Through Shakespearean insults, Roald Dahl’s made-up words and quick thinking games and discussions, the session culminates in a performance-based exercise giving pupils the chance to write and perform their own monologues.

To access this, and explore many more resources, please go to the Liverpool Children’s Festival of Reading: Cultural Programme Padlet. Just scroll across to select your workshop.

Suitable for KS2/lower KS3
