Covering the curriculum with stories : six cross-curricular projects that teach literacy and thinking through dramatic play
"Covering the Curriculum with Stories" is an exciting and unique resource, presenting a set of six delightful, cross-curricular play-based projects that deliver outstanding learning experiences.
Designed for children aged 3-7, these projects will make major contributions to pupils' literacy and literary skills, teach a whole repertoire of thinking skills and deliver many features of the Foundation and KS1 Curricula in an integrated, cross-curricular way.
Each project: is based on an original story; uses dramatic and kinaesthetic techniques; capitalises on children's natural instinct to play; lays down important conceptual foundations for later learning; and promotes emotional intelligence, learning-to-learn and citizenship.
The book provides everything you need to know to teach the projects successfully, including: clear overviews with precise learning intentions; simple, clear, step-by-step instructions; details of pupil activities; indications of cross-curricular links; and, references to QCA programmes of study.
In addition, you will find extensive worksheets and learning materials on the Resources CD inside the back cover. Plus CD-ROM of supplementary projects for foundation and KS1, plus artwork set.
