Rumpelstiltskin: audio story plus read along text

Rumpelstiltskin: audio story plus read along text

A fantastic audio story from Tale Time. KS2 children will love to listen to this quirky, fun retelling of the Traditional Tale Rumpelstiltskin by Brother’s Grimm. Great for whole class or small group listening. Ideal for reading interventions for children who struggle to read but like a good story. Why not listen whilst reading along? Brilliant way to support reading for children with additional needs; EAL, dyslexia. This story is ten minutes in length. Want to extend this resource? We’ve created a whole Rumpelstiltskin Resource Pack , which includes the story and the read along text as well as differentiated listening and writing tasks.

Finding Fiona Sensory Story

Finding Fiona Sensory Story

This is a sensory story I created for my topic 'stories'. This was written for a PMLD class of pupils. I have written it with the sentence, the sense, the sensory experience and what I and my TAs are looking for and observing throughout the sessions. Repeat story throughout the term to enable the child to develop anticipation, investigation, awareness, preference and much more. Could also be used in an EYFS KS1 class. Please read our Sensory Dispensary blog for further information on how and why to use this resource: http://sensorydispensary.blogspot.co.uk/. We blog about planning, resources, research, events, CPD, reviews and much more.

Two assemblies which focus on the work done by the MACS charity (Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma Support). MACS is a charity for young people who were born without eyes or with underdeveloped eyes, so the assemblies focus on the importance of valuing our vision and how we should treat everyone with respect and without prejudice. The assemblies focus on the work MACS do to help and support young people. One of the assemblies is to raise awareness of the work MACS does and the other is for schools interested in fundraising for the charity. These are especially useful for schools teaching topics on prejudice and discrimination and also schools with a child who uses MACS' services.
