Making mini-books about me
Examples of work produced in the spring term by Y5 and Y6 children at Aston by Sutton Primary School, Aston, Cheshire.
This work was produced in class as preparation for my visit a few days before I visited their school. Children used independent web-based research (this website and others) to find out biographical information about me, which they then presented in the 'pocket biographies' you see here.
Pre-visit preparation such as this engages children in many ways, not least bringing in ICT, DT, and literacy. There is a real sense of discovery and learning, and the outcome is work that has been fun to do, and can be presented in a classroom display.
