History , Herstory, the stories of one life, several lives, all our lives!
Storytelling is part of the very fabric of our being and one way in which we try to make sense of our journey through life.
The oral tradition lives and, as the Government states in it’s English Curriculum, speaking and listening are the two most important language skills.
Storytelling may be an integral part of our developing realistic learning contexts for learning, such as “Mantle of the Expert”, or experienced as an activity in it’s own right.
