It's National Storytelling week | What's YOUR story?

This week is National Storytelling week (1st to 8th February 2014).  It's about storyTELLING - in other words, using our own words to tell stories through talk.  We do this all the time with the children as we talk about the things we are doing and what we are learning.  Or when the children tell us what they did at school today (or not!).

Here's a link to a lovely blog post from the Federation of Children's Book Groups by Katherine Erskine about the importance of storytelling.


If you think about it, we probably know lots of stories that we could tell with out a book - Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the Three Little Pigs, the Gingerbread Man etc.  Why not give story telling a go this week!
