Schools

Bring a live Pilgrim re-enactor and storyteller into your school for a lovely interactive storytelling  session with a One Small Candle Pilgrim.

One Small Candle would like to announce we have developed Mayflower  learning experiences for local schools.  We have appeared at a few schools and were amazed at the way the children and teachers got involved with a “live” Pilgrim in the class.

David recently attended the Mayflower Academy in Plymouth and presented the Mayflower story to 120 young pupils in 4 separate sessions. David was thrilled with the response and the One Small Candle committee decided this was a good way to move as the experience was so very lovely for all!

A costumed Pilgrim re-enactor can attend any school from Ivybridge, Saltash, Exeter, Truro and areas… including Plymouth of course!  Mustn’t forget Holbeton in the South Hams where David was born!

Hi David,

Thank you so much for the story telling sessions today. The pupils have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and didn’t stop talking about it all afternoon. 

The pupils were so inspired from your story that a few came back at lunch time to ask if they could sit in our book corners and research more facts about the Mayflower Ship. 

The pupils each produced a piece of writing, capturing many of your inspiring and gruesome facts! Your sessions gave a real purpose to our project learning. The pupils now have a real background knowledge which they can use and apply in their tour guide booklets in preparation for our school trip.

Thank you for your kind donation of the Mayflower Ship Maps and Post cards. The parents were so touched at the end of the day by their child’s excitement, many exclaimed that they wish they had been invited to take part.

The pupils are very much looking forward to meeting you on the Barbican for our KS1 trip. Thank you again for a wonderful morning!

Kind regards,

Carly-Ann Rose
