Is there Room on the Broom for a class like us?

I just love doing projects on stories that I used to read to my own children, after “the smartest giant in town” and “the gruffalo” we’ve been reading another of my favourites.

The students love predicting what is going to happen, with a bit of thought you can really create suspense when reading stories in class.

Not only is it the opportunity to learn vocabulary, the rhyming lilt of these stories encourages the students to learn language chunks (they still chant “goodbye little mouse” when I leave their class).

The students particularly appreciate the opportunity to show their own creativity after working on the story, here they created their own spells and brooms, which were indeed “truly magnificent”.
