There is no question about it, children love sharing and hearing stories. Even better than that, however, is the chance to play the story – to take what you have seen or heard and to make it real, to decide what goes where, when and with whom.

Opportunities like these are vital for our young children and they offer so many possibilities for negotiation, creative thinking, planning, evaluating, constructing, investigating and wonderful, joyful expression.

This superb pack enables educators to make maps of story spaces that represent their children’s journeys, and encourages children to become more consciously aware of their surroundings. Giving adult attention and permission to make, to try, to have a go, the transformation of their spaces will offer children huge learning opportunities right across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
