SaSi (Songs and Stories Incorporated) is a brand-new collaboration between Ursula and Musician / Comedian Keith Donnelly; a positive response to schools having been forced to cut students exposure to music and drama in recent years and folk festivals, clubs and private groups wanting to book ‘something different.’
Recognizing that a child’s access to rhythm and rhyme directly develops their language and co-ordination and that storytelling enhances their listening, speaking and cognitive skills, this highly entertaining pair have resolved to put their backgrounds in teaching and child psychology to good use by creating a number of bespoke, interactive shows for each key stage / age group, designed specifically to stimulate cross curricular follow ups. From Pre School to High School, all material covers the main areas of learning advocated by OFSTED and upholds the aims and objectives of ECAT (Every Child a Talker).
SaSi further offers interactive Storytelling and / or Music Workshops for teachers aimed at stimulating creativity and confidence to play. To find out more about these please visit Ursula’s ‘Education’ page.
For adult audiences Ursula and Keith have honed a very SaSi Show; a perfect combination of comedy, music, song and story.
