Adventure Stories for Reading, Learning and Literacytakes 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:
- 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.
