DICK WHITTINGTON RESOURCES

Check out our free Dick Whittington resources for kids, parents, teachers, nurseries and fairytale fans

Storytelling Resources

There's a storyteller in everyone, from the very small to the very old and everything in between.  We have images & characters from the story Dick Whittington that you can download to tell your very own version. 

 

Here are our top three tips for being a brilliant storyteller:

DO YOUR OWN VERSION

  • There are no rules – you can literally make it up as you go along

  • Don’t worry about telling the version that’s written

  • You’ll tell the same story over and over again, but it will be different every time

INVOLVE THE AUDIENCE

  • Ask the kids questions!

  • Go with their answers.  There are no right or wrong answers

BRING THE CHARACTERS TO LIFE

  • Do the voices

  • Be silly!

and remember...

YOU ARE YOUR CHILDREN’S FAVOURITE STORYTELLER (BECAUSE YOU FEED THEM!)
