SCHOOLS: Super Paua Stories

Monday 29th November, 2021 - 09:30 - Wednesday 1st December, 2021 - 11:30

Choose from two online workshops outlined below to explore multilingual storytelling and creativity in your classroom. These workshops will be conducted via ZOOM.

Super Paua Stories Workshop #1 – Krys’s Passport to Poland – Listening Party!

“When Krys Maguire’s family move from Poland, she says goodbye to best friend Aggy and any chance of going to the Euros. “Co może być ważniejsze niż Mistrzostwa Europy?” But a trip to Dalymount means the soccer-mad schoolgirl might get the result she wants after all.” 

A listening party is where a theatre show meets a workshop; the excitement of listening to stories paired with the fun of making art together.

This listening party will focus on Krys’s Passport to Poland, a bilingual story (mostly in English) from our Polish language and culture focused series of stories, Opowiadania Super Paua.  Together we will celebrate the languages spoken in the class, listen to the story, and using theatre and storytelling techniques imagine ourselves as multilingual journalists reporting on things that are important to us (things that are real, and things that might have a flavour of magic).


Super Paua Stories Workshop #2 – Getting Lost- Ag Dul Ar Strae

Themes/Téamaí: Languages, storytelling, creativity / Teangacha, scéalaíocht, cruthaitheacht 

Age/Aois: 2nd-6th Ám/Time: 90 noiméaid/minutes

Languages/Teangacha: Bilingual Workshop through Irish and English (and other languages if you want!)/ Is ceardlann dátheangach é trí Ghaeilge agus i mBearla (agus teangacha eile, más mian libh!)In this workshop we’ll be playing with idioms and proverbs to create stories together, and to celebrate different languages (Irish, English and the other languages in your class!). We’ll use drama, images and conversation to create imaginative stories from unique poetic phrases in our native languages, chosen by the children.

This workshop is based on Lara ar Strae from Scéalta Super Paua, a bilingual podcast for children. This story, and many more, are free online on Itunes, Spotify, Podbean, etc.

Sa cheardlann seo, beidh muid ag imirt le náthanna cainte agus seanfhocail chun scéalta a chrothú le chéile agus teangacha éagsúla a cheiliúradh (an Ghaeilge, an Béarla agus na teangacha eile i do rang!). Bainfimid úsáid as drámaíocht, íomhanna, agus cómhrá chun scéalta samhlaíochta a chruthú ó na frásaí fileata uathúla inár dteangacha dhúchais, roghnaithe ag na páistí féin. Tá an ceardlann seo bunaithe ar Lara Ar Strae ó Scéalta Super Paua, podchraoladh dátheangach do pháistí. Tá an scéal seo, agus tuilleadh scéalta sa chlár Super Paua Stories, ar fáil saor in aisce ar Itunes, Spotify, Podbean, srl.
