Challenge 2 Create a storytelling stick (30.3.20)


Aim: To remember the key parts of a story.

EYFS links: Listens to stories with increasing attention and recall. Beginning to be aware of the way stories are structured. Describes main story settings, events and principal characters (‘Literacy’ and ‘Communication and Language’)


Think of a favourite story or ask Mummy or Daddy to read you a new one.  We have recently spent time at Nursery reading and retelling ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ so you might find it easier choosing one of these.


You will need some small pieces of paper about 5x5cm, a big stick (if you can’t go out safely to find a fallen stick/branch ask if you can borrow the broom or mop), crayons and tape or sticky tack.


1) Listen to a story – listen carefully to the different parts of the story and which order they come in.

2) Talk to an adult about the main parts of the story that you can remember.

3) Now use the paper and crayons to draw pictures of the story. Use a different piece of paper for each part of the story.

4) Attach your pictures to your stick in the correct order and tell your story!


Don't forget to take a photo and put it on Tapestry so we can see your lovely creations!


Can you guess which story this is?
