Guide to Storytelling
These resources are all based around the Bible stories. For the children to explore the stories and learn from them they first of all need to hear the story.
How you tell them the story is up to you.
We love story telling and each story has a story telling script included. You can use these to help your class ‘act out’ the story as you tell it from the front. These scripts ensure the main points of Christian belief are emphasised which will help as you deliver the rest of the lesson.
The Scottish Bible Society has produced wonderful images from the stories. These are found in their Bibleworld PowerPoints and can be downloaded for free. The Bible text is attached as notes in the PowerPoint to help you tell the story.
You could find a children’s Bible and read the story from there. It’s always worth checking that the story is an accurate reflection of the actual Bible account. The same applies if you’re planning to use a video of the story.
Ideas and resources to develop learning across the curriculum
“The level of engagement was wonderful and the variety of responses proves that even children as young as they are, can be capable of individual thoughts they do not necessarily always follow the crowd.”
