CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Adventure Stories for Reading, Learning and Literacy takes a unique approach
to cross-curricular teaching in the primary classroom. Providing eight original
adventure stories, the authors build up a suite of resources and activities for
teachers to use in the classroom, providing cross curricular links in line with
the PNS framework, to literacy, science, PE, design and technology, numeracy,
geography and history. Though the stories will interest both girls and boys,
they take special care to appeal to boys, who are known to achieve less highly
than girls in reading and writing, and include themes such as: cars football
ghosts and ghouls heroic deeds space and aliens.
Each story is linked explicitly to moral and social values, and can be used to
reinforce citizenship, PHSE and SEAL initiatives in primary schools. With
photocopiable resources for each story, this book offers instant ideas which
can be implemented easily in teacher’s plans and in the classroom and assembly,
and will appeal to all busy teachers, NQTs and teachers in training.
