Digital Delivery

If you choose a digital workshop with Grimm & Co, the session will take place entirely over Zoom (digital communication platform).

Here is our offer to your school:

Before the workshop: In a digital workshop, the Grimm & Co facilitators will not be in the classroom and as such, we will need your help to co-facilitate at certain points. We ask for a thirty minute meeting, approximately one week before the workshop, to talk through the structure of the session.

The day of the workshop:  We can deliver a digital story making session in any classroom space, however you will require an interactive whiteboard, access to wifi and a Zoom account.

After the workshop:  Gather together the pupils’ story making endings, photocopy them, and post the originals to:
Graham and Grizelda Grimm
Grimm & Co
The Old Town Hall
Rotherham
S60 1QX

Once Grimm & Co receive the pupils’ endings, we will publish every single one and deliver them back to your school approximately two weeks after receiving them. The children and young people will see that they have become published authors.

What is the class teacher’s role during a digital Grimm & Co workshop?

Story making sessions are delivered by Grimm & Co’s session leaders, with support from the class teacher during the digital workshop. This is simply because, without an external microphone, it can be sometimes difficult to hear the children.

We encourage you to observe and reflect on how your class responds to the workshop. Seeing their teachers watching and enjoying the session can also really help the engagement of the children and the dynamic of the group.

The Grimm & Co approach is friendly and informal, which means that we like it when a class gets excitable and enthusiastic about their ideas! The session leaders are trained in behaviour management and are comfortable dealing with this when required. However, we realise we are not in the classroom during a digital session and if there are any particular difficulties or incidents we would welcome your additional support.
