Amelia Boo Stories is a group created by Rebecca Merry to introduce and encourage a love of books and literacy to children at a young age. Rebecca is an early years specialist, Dramatherapist and mum of two.
We use a variety of stories that are repeated on a cyclical basis. This helps the children to become familiar with the story songs, action/ movement, helping the children to feel confident in the session and encourages participation and learning.
The sessions are very interactive encouraging children to be absorbed in the story to their full capacity. In the session the children will take part in action, songs, movement and games that are related to the text of the story, often with an emphasis on counting, animals, and other age appropriate learning.
The group has been created to a high standard with the main emphasis on fun! Stories are brought to life using puppets, movement, song, developmental movement and sensory material which offers the children the opportunity to experience the story on many levels.
About Amelia Boo Classes
A Bit about Me
I'm a London Mum of two with a love of Theatre, Books
After training at Mountview School of Performing Arts in London, I spent some time as a jobbing actor working in schools and education, and immediately loved working with children.
After a few years, I decided that I wanted to develop my skills, so took time out to complete an MA in Dramatherapy at Central School of Speech and Drama.
Amelia Boo Stories started in 2013 after the birth of my second child and, as some of you know, I'm not Amelia!
There's a story behind the name ..... but that's for another time.
