Power in stories

Share This Post

At COLT teaching happens through oral storytelling. Using keen and sincere observation of the child the teacher addresses antisocial behaviour such as anger, hitting, biting, and stealing through storytelling. Stories that are age, language and culturally appropriate are told to the children daily. Listening to these stories children are invited to use their imagination and it lays the foundation for literacy, developing a rich language, and conveying social values and morals. Social issues such as neglect and abuse are also addressed through storytelling which promotes healing in our children who have suffered complex trauma.

This term our stories are linked to the Season of Autumn; Sunflower Class is exploring The Gingerbread Man.

In Daisy Class it’s the story about The Little Red House with no doors and no windows and a star inside.
