From 28th Jan to 4th February it’s all about telling stories. So rather than rolling your eyes when your students tell you that their homework was eaten by their sibling, or that the school bus broke down, instead congratulate them on their vivid imagination and excellent storytelling abilities. Below is a roundup of resources and websites that will help you to celebrate this creative week.

A set of cut out cards with story prompts for a group storytelling activity. Notes for the teacher are included.
