This is the perfect collection for any teacher who needs a sourcebook of great traditional stories for children aged 5-11 to work from.

The first Storytelling Schools handbook was published in 2013. Since then, the method has been adopted in hundreds of schools across the UK and beyond. This new handbook includes a range of new insights and approaches which have evolved over these seven years.
The handbook is aimed at early years, primary school and middle school teachers as well as home educators.
All around the world children are learning to adapt to the new realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. This story collection offers a way for parents and teachers to help them, providing stories which will enable the child to better understand the science of the pandemic, their own personal responses, and the key behaviours that can keep them and their communities safer. Many of the stories are tried and tested teaching aids drawn from previous Storytelling Schools collections. Others have been created and adapted for this volume.
This collection of storytelling games and creative activities provides a clear, concise and rich source of ideas for how to learn and play through storytelling. Sections include speaking and listening games, learning to tell a story, drama, movement, music, poetry, writing, story recycling and story creation.
