Event description

Description

What do we feel children’s perceptions of stories are? Are they different from ours as adults?

The role of the teacher here is very important in working alongside children, at a child’s own pace, to discover more about stories. It is only when children have a good knowledge of storytelling that the stories children tell, take off. This workshop will allow some time for unpacking and rethinking what we (adults) feel stories are and how this differs to how we think children view stories.

The workshop will go on to help teachers gain strategies for developing a storytelling culture which supports all children to share their stories in a manner which fosters and enhances oral language skills, stimulates communication skills, develops a child’s confidence and self-esteem, encourages imagination and creative self-expression.
