Storytelling, UK

Storytelling is an integral part of the educational system in the UK. Even from reception classes 4-5 year old children are initiated in the actual reading and writing. Last week my visit in Reception in a very good school in a village near where I live left me stunned. So young children being taught reading and writing in such a way; through play and several other techniques! My experience with Key Stage 1 and 2 so far has been so that children in Britain read LOTS of literature for children. At the same time they listen to their teachers or teacher assistants reading out stories to them. The teaching of phonics is also prominent so reading for practice really helps. You can read more about storytelling here.
