Book Description

This book is an indispensable resource for use in both the classroom and assembly, providing a delightful collection of fifteen original themed stories and activities, designed to develop key values and skills. Using the power of story, it stimulates reflection and discussion on a range of topics.

The material is presented to maximise fun in learning, flexibility and coverage of National Curriculum guidelines for values education teaching. Amongst the key values discussed are:

  • personal responsibility and independence
  • co-operation and sharing
  • honesty and justice
  • respect for world religions.

Each session contributes to key skills in English, whilst many of the activities involve use of co-ordination, numeracy and science skills. In addition, the stories are implicitly multicultural in flavour, giving a diverse and innovative feel to the book as a whole.

An irresistibly charming, and yet practical tool, its topical tales and photocopiable resources make it an essential classroom companion.
