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