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:

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

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

references to QCA programmes of study.

In addition, you will find extensive worksheets and learning materials on the Resources CD inside the back cover.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Covering the Curriculum with Stories is a delightful resource for all those who want to ensure that children learn effectively through dramatic play and that they have fun too. Steve Munby, Chief Executive, National College for School Leadership Covering the Curriculum with Stories is a marvellous resource. Alistair Smith, Chair of Alite and best-selling author Sharon and Paul have captured the power of storytelling but have added the impact of drama, the disciplines of literacy and, crucially, underpinned everything with strategies for effective learning. Professor John West-Burnham, Honorary Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Hull If only the entire school curriculum were built around such imaginative and engaging resources and activities as these... Professor Guy Claxton, Visiting Professor of Education, University of Bristol and creator of Building Learning Power This must surely be the most comprehensive approach to using stories to explore almost every nook and cranny of the school curriculum. Bill Lucas, best-selling author and Chairman of The Talent Foundation Here are the experts, Sharon and Paul, offering a fabulous resource to enable all Foundation and KS1 teachers to re-energise their teaching. Jenny Mosley, Education Consultant and Trainer"
