This resource is full of activity ideas to use with just about any fiction text in a primary setting. The activities will help your pupils get to grips with concepts such as plot, character and setting, and also provide opportunities for them to share their opinions about what they've read.
This resource is aimed at children with additional support needs who want to have fun with books. By adding interesting playful activities and sensory elements to reading aloud, we can help children engage with and understand stories. Activities include:
- Create a sensory story
- Story dress-up
- Story pass the parcel
- Make a game out of the book
- Sound effect story
This resource outlines how focusing on reading for pleasure with the First Minister’s Reading Challenge can help you achieve your aims as a school, from raising attainment to improving pupils’ health and wellbeing.
