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 your 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 within this book is based on an original story. Using dramatic and kinaesthetic techniques it capitalises on children’s natural instinct to play. The book 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.
