Sara Stanley is in inspired infant practitioner and I invited her to Swansea to work with teachers in four different schools for one day each. She worked alongside teachers in the Foundation Phase (age 3-7 in Wales) to introduce them to philosophical play in the classroom. One of the teachers, Lucy Martin in Glynncollen Primary School, decided to take on the challenge of introducing a year-long storytelling curriculum into her classroom. Mid-way through the year I visited her for a morning and documented some of what was happening through video, photographs and field notes. Later in this article I reflect on what I saw, but before we join Lucy in her nursery classroom I report on an interview I carried out with Sara who explained what the year-long story curriculum looks like.
