Making Relationships is a new resource part of the ‘Using storytelling to talk about…’ series, which
gives teaching practitioners all the support and resources they need to develop and use storytelling, poetry
and song performance skills in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
The book includes a variety of short and original interactive stories and poems, that are linked to the three
different learning and development areas, ‘Personal, social and emotional development’, ‘Understanding
the world’ and ‘Communication and language’.
All the stories and poems/songs offer the children the opportunity to learn, develop and share their
knowledge and skills in a fun and interactive environment. The resource also contains further discussion,
consolidation suggestions and cross-curricular activities.
