The Scottish Storytelling Forum is the leading organisation promoting oral storytelling in its traditional and contemporary forms, aiming to give every child in Scotland the experience of live storytelling.
At its heart, storytelling is a creative activity that connects us with the people around us and with our past, present and future, opening the world of imagination.
Storytelling engages the four core creativity skills identified in Education Scotland’s Impact Report on creative learning which apply across the Curriculum for Excellence.
Curiosity | Open-mindedness
Imagination | Problem Solving
The magic of storytelling has the power to bring the curriculum to life, enabling vivid and embodied learning and understanding across all subject areas.
Stories are a great way to explore themes and projects that meet cross-curricular experiences and outcomes.
