Our unique play environment provides an inspiring venue for school visits.

Our Story World and immersive exhibitions provide a wide range of interactive activities that use creative play to engage children and support development of communication, creativity and literacy skills.

All of our school sessions complement the national curriculum and are led by our wonderful Story Builders, who are trained to support core language, literacy and key skills. All sessions are adaptable for disabled, SEN and EAL children.

We are a supporter of Arts Award and our school sessions can contribute towards sections of the ‘Discover’ and ‘Explore’ awards.

Story World

Our Story World sessions include a creative literacy workshop and exploration into the clouds of our magical first floor Story World. A fun and creative session where your class will use their imagination and story-building skills through spoken language, listening, drama, storytelling and exploration of Discover’s unique environments.
