We have a Story Tent!

We have acquired the above story tent on a long-term loan from another Schools' Library Service, and we are now able to offer it to Hillingdon schools to use.

Story tent The story tent is a global learning resource for Foundation and KS1 classrooms, designed and decorated by pupils from schools in Tower Hamlets.

Our story tent has the theme of Environment. 

The story tent contains:                 

  • eight illustrated side panels, roof panel, groundsheet and frame
  • supporting resources
  • teacher's information pack including:
    • background information
    • how to utilise the 'story tent' as a class, year or whole school initiative
    • National Curriculum schemes of work
    • literacy hour lesson plans
    • ideas and activities
    • details of cross-curricula links
    • instructions for putting up the tent

The tent is freestanding and so can be 'pitched' on any suitable surface, but is for indoor use only.


  • Square tent, each side measuring 214cm (7 foot or 84")
  • Height to top of panel 102cm (40")
  • Maximum height inside of tent 45cm (57")

Assembly takes two adults 20 to 25 minutes
