National Storytelling Week 2024

National Storytelling Week takes place every year and is a celebration of the power of sharing stories. This year it is being celebrated between 27 January and 4 February 2024.

Sharing and making up stories with your child is a great way to help them relax, develop empathy, and learn about the world. It also boosts their vital literacy skills. Dream up new worlds inspired by the everyday objects around you. Maybe a favourite teddy has unbelievable adventures whilst you sleep, or a pair of old shoes gives you magical powers when you wear them! The possibilities are endless.

We will be marking National Storytelling Week by encouraging the children to tell  their own stories.  Their stories could be as simple as what they had for lunch; or more imaginative, for instance telling us what they would see if they were an astronaut.  Storytelling is a great skill to develop, allowing children to use their imaginations and develop their communication skills.
