Story sacks

Story Sack 1

Story Sacks are designed to give children a more genuine insight into a specific story, by offering the opportunity to gain tactile experience of handling and exploring objects linked to the key themes in the book.  These objects can be used in a variety of different ways e.g. to form the basis of role play, sequencing, discussion, comparison or guessing games. 

Each story sack contains a copy of the main story book, an accompanying Non-Fiction Text that complements the key themes of the story and a collection of objects and resources that allow you to explore and enjoy the story in greater depth. In addition to this, each sack contains an activities pack containing ideas and resources that have been designed to extend engagement with the book and encourage the development of a range of skills linking to the EYFS curriculum, including communication, sequencing and early writing and maths.
