- Rhyme and repetition
- Developing empathy
What is it really like to meet an alien? Professor Smedley of Storytelling tells us all about Space Girl, a funny and charming oral story – just perfect for drama, storytelling and art activities with younger children.
Nikky Smedley’s Space Girl is a wonderful oral story for younger children – watch it here. The story is full of lovely rhyme and repetition and, as children watch the video, they will soon see that they can predict what is coming next (at the ‘What is this…’ section). In fact, it becomes quite addictive! Let the children join in with Nikky as they listen to and enjoy the story.
