Throughout all of our history and across every culture, people have told each other stories for a variety of reasons – to inspire others, to share important morals and lessons or simply to pass the time. National Storytelling Week is a yearly event run by the Society for Storytelling that celebrates the tradition of storytelling and aims to inspire a whole new generation of storytellers.
National Storytelling Week provides a wonderful opportunity for you to highlight the importance of reading and storytelling. There’s no better time to get everyone together and appreciate the magic of a great story.
Nursery enjoyed reading for pleasure and using props with the story Room on the broom by Julia Donaldson.
