Storyboards or researchboards
Examples of biographical storyboards or researchboards produced by children as preparation for my visit a few days before I visited their schools.
Children used independent web-based research (this website and others) to find out biographical information about me, which they then presented in the work 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.
