In the Maintained Nursery we have begun a project to help us to support your child’s Communication and Language skills and also their storytelling skills. This is called Tales Toolkit.
Tales Toolkit focusses on four key areas for storytelling:
We use 4 different objects – one for each of the areas – and use these objects to tell a story. The children have all enjoyed their special storytelling times and are all very eager to help with the story telling. The children love our Tales Toolkit Sessions when they get to become authors for the day. We have found that it is really improving the children's vocabulary and storytelling skills.
How you can help at home:
When looking at a book, or even watching a favourite television programme, use the Tales Toolkit Language including problem and solution, and encourage your child to talk about the story.
Here’s what Tales Toolkit say…
Tales Toolkit is a learning tool that effectively develops children skills in lots of areas of learning and including language, literacy, social skills, creativity, confidence, empathy, writing, problem solving, maths and lots more
