Early Level Literacy Workshop – Story based workshop (JoJo Gnome & the Beanstalk)

This workshop is based round the story of ‘JoJo Gnome and the Beanstalk’.

The story is brought to life with the class digging, growing magic beans and even bouncing in the clouds. We have a look at seeds big and small, check out which veg grow under ground and above ground….and listen to the story ‘Sow and Grow with JoJo Gnome’, where JoJo Gnome discovers how to grow a garden!

The session is rounded off with some stop frame animation of JoJo Gnome’s garden growing done by the children.

Comments from teachers about past workshops

“I have had the pleasure of doing several workshops with Jo. Her workshops are exciting and engaging and I am always blown away by how much she achieves in such a short period of time.”   (Rachel Allen Primary Teacher, Strathblane, Scotland)

“Thank you to JoJo Gnome for an inspirational week of digital literacy exploration. Through social media we were captivated into a world of imagination and adventure. The pinnacle was when JoJo Gnome & the Sound Machine came to nursery for the day to finish our stories and make movies together. Haste ye back! “(Kate O’Neill, Head of Cornton Nursery, Stirling, Scotland)
