Started by gathering all the children around the front table – this was good as it enabled all the children to see the explanation and modelling of how to make the story book.
There was a range of resources and colours for the children to choose from, however i was in charge of the glitter to avoid any hassle and too much mess. The children loved the glitter as it was engaging and interesting. All of the resources were there for the children, they did not need to waste time cutting them out etc as this was the only time available to make their booklets. The majority of the children were able to complete the task independently and those few who were struggling came to the front of the class for extra assistance. The children produced some great ideas and all achieved what was set out to do.
The story books were then used cross curricular as the children wrote up their recounts about their recent trip to Tropical World, which was linked to their topic of ‘The Deadly 60’.
