About the project

Chris Holland and Rachel Higginson have put together these resources to inspire, and make it easy for, teachers and educators to provide a new wave of broad and engaging, balanced and cross-curricular education for children. 

Whole-learning aims to:

  • help teachers become more confident and natural oral storytellers
  • inspire and en-livening the learning experience
  • to provide their settings with engaging, creative and fun ideas for their pupils.

The Children's Fire

Children love to learn and grow through stories – the keep their passion, and enthusiasm for life alive. Stories are many layered – they are a store-house of wisdom. Children are naturally curious and intelligent, and given the opportunity, children make the stories relevant and purposeful to their life’s journey. Whole-learning helps them to keep their inner fire alive!
