Dreamtime Storytelling in Nature Play
This week, schools all around the country are celebrating Book Week, with many different activities and celebrations to experience the love books, and enjoyment that reading brings.
In line with the theme, ‘Dreaming with your eyes open’ the students at PPN read and told stories, through traditional Dreamtime storytelling, using symbols that represented objects, people, animals and letters of the alphabet. Some students found the symbols hiding amongst the dried lentils, while others had a turn at using their hands in the sand to tell a story using the symbols they represent.
Many came and enjoyed sharing stories using symbols in the sand, others quickly began to enjoy the sensory experience that playing with dried lentils can bring!
What ways have you shared stories and enjoyed the love of reading with your family this Book Week?
