KS1 Story Telling Cards


Oral story telling is an essential foundation for effective writing.

These attractive storytelling cards help KS1 children understand basic story structure, and can be used as a classroom activity, as well as kept on display for pupils to access for play and self-initiated learning. It's also perfect for National Storytelling Week!

Blank cards allow children to come up with their own characters, settings, problems and sentence starters.

English objectives covered are:

  • Y1 – composing sentences orally before writing
  • Y2 – planning or saying aloud what they are going to write about
  • Y2 – encapsulating what they want to say, sentence by sentence
