"There's always room for a story that can transport people to another place."

J K Rowling


Words for everyone

Ignite imaginations and unleash the scribe inside every pupil. We're talking powerful poems, epic yarns, monster myths, eternal truths and tall tales...

This year we are partnering with The Reading Agency and The Poetry Society to give your class the chance to pen their own poems and weave their own tales. The Poetry Archive have also created a bespoke Access All Arts Week poetry playlist to help you explore different poems with your class, plus our team of wordsmiths will be there throughout the resources to help pupils bring their words to life.

Access All Arts will be harnessing the power of written and spoken Words with The Poetry Society. Rhythm, rhyme, alliteration... spark some linguistic fireworks in your classroom.

Our Poetry pathway will give pupils space to explore sounds, play with words, create images and make bold connections.



Access All Arts and The Reading Agency are teaming up to show your storytellers the best ways to beguile a reader and intrigue a listener.

If you choose to take our Storytelling pathway, be prepared to unleash imaginations as your pupils set off on adventures that could take them literally anywhere...

The Benefits

Oral storytelling and spoken word are a powerful equaliser in the classroom. Listening to, telling and retelling stories develops literacy skills whilst immersing children in the tale, allowing them to be present in each storytelling moment.
