Helicopter Stories On Demand

Helicopter Stories On Demand is based on the work of Vivian Gussin Paley and is a step by step guide to the innovative practice of Storytelling and Story Acting. 

Helicopter Stories On Demand gives you:

  • One year of on demand professional development, giving access to everything you need to know on How To Deliver Helicopter Stories with your children.
  • The course is presented by Trisha Lee in bite-sized units and can be accessed at any time, day or night as long as you have an internet connection.
  • The training goes into great detail about the Helicopter Stories approach and how to make it a regular part of your Early Years practice. 
  • Each lesson contains a video of between 10 to 15 minutes, alongside relevant downloadables, simple tasks to help you absorb the material and additional reading suggestions.
  • Each unit includes actual footage of children aged 2 – 7 years old, engaging with Helicopter Stories.
  • The course also includes Units on Grammar, Emergent Writing, Violence and Weapon Play in Children’s Dictated Stories, and The Power of Story.

Trisha Lee is an experienced trainer. In this course she goes far deeper in sharing her experiences and thoughts on the power of Helicopter Stories, than she has ever been able to during a full day of training.

Unlocking the Imagination

Helicopter Stories is deeply engaging and powerful at unlocking the imagination of all. The online course and resources are detailed, interesting and informative. Each chapter gives a deeper insight into the techniques used within the sessions. To review Helicopter Stories in a small review box would never do it justice. But one word can be used to summarise it overall... BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Brilliant!

This is a fantastic course, the videos are very engaging and easy to follow. Even though I have had training in the past, I have learnt so much more this time round. Everything you need to know is fully covered in depth, and it’s really made me think about my own practice and how I can improve. The children are loving helicopter stories and ask to tell stories all time. Would highly recommend.

Love this resource!

This resource is a wonderful tool for learning the amazing Helicopter Stories approach. Easy digestible units make it great to dip in and out of to learn at whatever pace suits you. Loads of anecdotes to learn from. Whether you're new to Helicopter Stories or not, its a great place to learn from scratch or dip into again to reaffirm a learning aspect. Very well made resource. Wonderful!

Fabulous

Such a fantastic resource - for those already using Helicopter Stories, or for those new to it. The short videos are so inspiring and full of clips of Helicopter Stories in action - perfect for learning and reflecting on practice. The way Helicopter Stories on Demand has been organised into units makes it so easy to access and the additional resources just add so much more. Wonderful!

Inspirational

The fact that this resource is being delivered online while many of us don't have a full class and it is still inspiring, absorbing and challenging shows what a great resource this is. The videos are short and easy to watch; and the training is so thorough with real clips from classrooms to demonstrate each point.

A rich and rewarding resource

This is such a rich resource. It's wonderful to see training available online, so that more providers can access it, but this is grea also for those already familiar with Helicopter Stories. Having additional material to look forward to is also inspiring. Trish is so approachable and the use of video examples really helps to bring it all alive. And the Vivan Gussin Paley quotes are wonderful.

Brilliant CPD

Helicopter Stories On Demand is simply brilliant. Each video lesson is engaging and easy-to-follow - there are plenty of useful, practical tips. I enjoy watching the videos because they reinforce the things I already know, and also enthuse me to go back and do more with my Helicopter Sessions in class.The children in my class benefit from the enrichment of the Helicopter Stories approach.
