What is it?
A story box is a miniature setting, a shoe box-sized stage with a background and objects within it relating to either a specific book, or to a common story scenario.
Why do it?
Story boxes are a great resource to support children’s exploration of stories. They form areas in which to retell a favourite story, as well as creative arenas for children to make up new stories too- encouraging talk, imagination and literacy skills.
What can I do?
Encourage you child to create one! Choose a favourite story and create a scene from the story using art and craft materials. Share the story box with older or younger siblings asking some of the story box questions.

We would love to see some of your story boxes. Please send them in to Mrs Browne as we would like to create a display in the Discovery Suite.
