  • Hello, I'm Neil Griffiths, and educationalist and passionate storyteller.

  • We now know that if a child is going to love reading, we need to expose them to stories

  • being read aloud again and again.

  • And best of all to do that is mum and dad, grandma and grandpa. Sadly many adults feel

  • they don't have quite the skills that are needed to tell a story.

  • Well I am going to change that in the next 5 minutes, you will hear the story of itchy

  • bear and you'll see that there's a story in all of us.

  • I thought when Itchy Bear itches, he must make an itchy noise. And it sounds a bit like

  • this, *scratchy noise*

  • So, this is an important job, she snatched, did you see her?

  • This is a big job, don't get it wrong! Every time I saw 'ITCH' you're going to do 3 rubs of the sandpaper.

  • I need stereo sound - so could you two be the other scratchers?

  • Let's practice! Ready ... 'ITCH'

  • *scratchy noises*

  • 'ITCH'

  • *scratchy noises*

  • 'INK'

  • *scratchy noises*

  • Ah!

  • *Laughs*

  • Look!

  • *Awwww*

  • And look at the itchy bear story - woah!

  • Bear was having a nice long sleep, in fact he would have slept all day long, if he hadn't

  • begun to 'ITCH'

  • *scratchy noises*

  • This was not any old 'ITCH'

  • *scratchy noises*

  • It started between his toes!

  • Do your toes everyone!

  • Now it was under his chin!

  • No! It was between his big toe and small toe -- No!

  • It was his elbow!

  • No! It was all over. In fact he just couldn't stop 'ITCHING'

  • *scratchy noises*

  • And he 'ITCHED' and he 'ITCHED'

  • And he 'ITCHED'

  • And he thought 'I've got to find somewhere for a lovely scratch'

  • And look!

  • He found a gorgeous rock to do his bottom on, and can we do that first noise, because

  • as he did it, he went *Oh!*

  • *Oh Oh Oh*

  • And he 'itched' and he 'itched' and he 'itched'.

  • See, we have variety over here. She's doing low lying and up and downing!

  • Oh but look! A little mole popped up and the mole said, this is MY rock, I'm digging down

  • here, go and scratch somewhere else!

  • Just as it was getting good, can I have an 'AW'?

  • *Awwww!*

  • Then he found somewhere lovely to do behind his ears, can we have eyebrows? And he itched!

  • And he itched!

  • And he itched!

  • And it was gorgeous!

  • But then -- Oh I don't believe it! An owl was in the tree, and he was fast asleep.

  • He said, 'You've woken me up! Go and scratch somewhere else!'

  • *Awwww*

  • Then he found a lovely log to do his tummy, and he itched, and he itched, and he itched,

  • and it was gorgeous!

  • Oh no!

  • There was a squirrel in there! And the squirrel was counting - can you count to ten everyone?

  • 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10

  • Well you try and count when someone is shaking your log. You can't concentrate can you?

  • Oh dear.

  • Then Itchy Bear found twigs to do his toes! And he was just about to start doing his toes,

  • when a little voice went

  • "Oi!"

  • Madam - who do you think was hiding in the twigs?

  • A mouse? Not a mouse. Even smaller!

  • Even smaller than a mouse madam,

  • What has more legs than an ant?

  • More than a spider!

  • More than a centipede!

  • Yes it was!

  • It was a millipede, I know, and I want to give you a prize madam, now focus because

  • it's a big prize. Early Learning Centre have said no money matters, so don't mess about

  • with this.

  • Now I am not going to be horrible, because I could say how many legs has a millipede

  • got! There are too many!

  • But centipedes, how many legs?

  • Stop!

  • Don't move! Say it again!

  • Guess what? You haven't won. It was two weeks in Hawaii!!

  • Everybody thinks its a hundred but its 42 on average. What a shame! You haven't won

  • anything.

  • But then Itchy Bear found a lovely tree, could you come up and be my tree as well. Hold onto

  • your apple - show us your tree, why am I bothering?

  • Show us your branches!

  • That's a ballerina! One forward, sort of -- hold!

  • Itchy bear thought 'This does look like a good tree!'

  • But I'm scared, because I want to scratch my back but what if there's a millipede?

  • There wasn't.

  • What if there's is a mole?

  • There wasn't.

  • What if there's -- there was no owl.

  • There was no squirrel!

  • And he thought, well it looks good, so he got closer.

  • And he got closer, and closer and closer.

  • Could we all go *Oh!*

  • It was gorgeous!!

  • But no! He should of looked upwards because as he did look up, he would have known that

  • it was an apple tree!

  • Could you now be a shaky tree?

  • No that's a wavy tree!

  • What are you doing? Sort of vibrate!

  • And he thought, 'Oh No!'

  • Can we tap on our knees? Because all of the apples came down!

  • Look they tumbled on his head!

  • *Awwwww*

  • How could you?

  • And itchy bear thought 'everything has gone wrong today'

  • But just a minute, he stopped itching.

  • And he thought 'And I have all these apples!'

  • So he took a bite.

  • That was a full bite! Nice!

  • It was lovely - so he took tiny another one, and then a medium and then a whopper!

  • *Laughs*

  • And then with his mouth completely full, can you say delicious?

  • *Laughs*

  • And so it hadn't been such a bad day after all!

  • Give him a clap - because you were good!

  • Now I guarantee that no one will be able to answer this question, if you're 99 you won't

  • be able to, if you're 9 months.

  • You'll never get the answer to this question!

  • Why was itchy bear itching? And grown ups, you're allowed to shout out!

  • Why was Itchy Bear itchy in the first place?

  • Not fleas Madam! But a lovely guess!

  • No it wasn't heat rash - what made him itchy? Wasn't eczema, it wasn't dermatitis , stop

  • trying to be clever!

  • I'm going to have to show you! What is on itchy bear's toes?

  • Look! What

  • is it?

  • It's a naughty butterfly!

  • Doing the tickling!

  • So be thankful I just scratched and didn't tickle.

  • Well I hope you enjoyed that bear with his itches and scratches.

  • But what made that story successful? How did I get the children to enjoy every minute of

  • it?

  • Well, I worked hard! But we can all do it. Of course it was a story that was full of

  • humour, as many young children's stories are, lots of chances for sound effects.

  • And of course there was lows of movement.

  • But you'll have noticed, I didn't start the story straight away.

  • I set the scene, I started to talk about bears, very important, don't rush into a story. Take

  • your time.

  • Also, I hope you noticed that throughout that story, my face was on fire.

  • Because facial expression is so important, when I ohh-ed and aww-ed, my face was alive.

  • Very very important.

  • Also Itchy Bear was a great story for lots of role play and action and I know that you

  • would have noticed that I made some bits up. Ad lib is very important, don't be frightened

  • to throw bits into the story.

  • The children love it!

  • They'll notice but they love it.

  • And of course, the sound effects were endless, but make the most of the sound effects don't

  • just go *Oh!*

  • Go *OHHHHHHHHH!*

  • Don't just go *Ah* Go *AHHHHHHH!*

  • Really ham up your expressions and sound effects because the children will really respond to

  • it.

  • Throughout the story, notice, as here, that my hands were constantly on the move. Gesture

  • is very important. How could you scratch, without actually scratching?

  • So use every bit of your body.

  • Also, throughout a story, where you can build up suspense, build it up because I got the

  • children to just peep to see what creatures were on the next page. They had to try and

  • guess what was there.

  • And that is building up the anticipation, which is an important part of a story.

  • Also, make use of the lovely words in the book, in this book there were lovely words,

  • don't just go *delicious*

  • Go *DELICIOUS!*

  • Make the most of every single one.

  • And you'll have also noticed, that to add to the story, I threw in a few little props.

  • It doesn't take much to find a bit of sandpaper or an apple to munch.

  • So look at the story, and plan it before hand, and think 'How can I make it extra special?'

  • So happy scratching!
