School books weigh extra heavily in the satchel on the first day back after the Summer break. But not everyone has far to carry them. It’s back to school for home-schools too, you know ! This is from a delightful description of how one home school spends every day – not just term-time days. The […]
It’s always a pleasure to meet listeners, and also to find out how our stories are heard. At a get-to-gether of podcasters (those of us who post audio and video on the internet), I ran into Mr. Harrington, a teacher from Wales who uses Storynory in his classroom. Apparently, the children are allowed to listen […]
Game Goo has some wonderful flash games to encourage learning to read. Help a monkey to cross over a bridge by putting his words in the right order. Help the tooth fairy collect teetch by matching pairs of words with opposite meanings – you get the idea. It seems to be the online showcase for […]

I succumbed to Potter fever and hopped along to the cinema to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon watching the latest Harry Flick, The Order of the Phoenix. What I like about HP’s magic is that it is so psychological. In order to scare off demons, you have to conjure up your happiest moment in […]
“The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane…” So begins the most eagerly awaited novel of 2007. The internet is a kind of witchcraft, and it’s amazing what you can conjure up if you look hard enough. This is a picture of the not yet released Harry […]
One thing we love to read about on the blogosphere, is that Storynory is being used in Schools (and home schools too).We we are really pleased that Primary School UK has included Natasha’s reading of the Pied Piper by Robert Browning in their Pied Piper planning resource.
