National Storytelling Week 2021

Celebrate National Storytelling Week from the 30th January to 6th February.

“Storytelling can be found enriching lives everywhere. The sharing between teller and listener empowers, feeding the imagination from one generation to the next.”- Society for Storytelling.


Once upon a time, storytelling was a way to pass the time. Now, it's an excellent way to entertain and teach each other new ideas. This is why National Storytelling Week is celebrated annually by all ages who read the likes of folktales, fairytales, love stories and more. The possibilities of genres are endless!


Storytelling is a powerful tool that allows us to share stories that inspire and teach others.

Happy Wednesday everyone. Today, I have recorded a fable for you to listen to. It is one of Aesop's best-known fables: The Ant and the Dove.

The Ant and the Dove

Can you identify the moral in this fable? I think it is a great message. I also liked the mention of a process used in this week's Science lesson.
