Storytelling School

Storytelling!

The Storytelling Schools method is a dynamic and creative approach to learning. The main idea is simple: by learning to tell stories and make verbal presentations, children develop great oral communication skills while mastering the language and ideas they need for subsequent writing. This systematic approach is used for both fiction and non-fiction teaching as well as subject specific projects across the curriculum.

We were very proud to be awarded the 'Storytelling School Accreditation' earlier this year, through the hard work and dedication of staff in school. 

 

The Storytelling curriculum in our school follows in this general order: 

 

1. Hear our new story. 

2. Create a story map as a class, plotting the key events. 

3. Children creating their own story maps. 

4. Stepping out the story, using maps to help. 

5. Completing a range of deepening tasks to understand the story more. 

6. Innovating parts of the story. 

7. Completing a final best piece of writing.
