The Story Spinner and Stories from Around the World are DVDs for primary school children (from early years to Year 6) proven to help develop their literacy skills.
The DVDs allow you to have repeated viewings of the exact same telling of a particular live story, year after year, offering you excellent value for money. You can use the story as a powerful and versatile teaching tool: children can do their own re-telling and drama; analyse the story structure; discuss the characters; make story boards; writing; artwork… and of course, simply enjoy the shared experience of a good story.
What’s on the DVDs?
They are full of traditional stories, told (not read!) by internationally renowned storytellers.
