This Flat Stanley unit of work covers many of the National Curriculum. For English the aim is for the children to internalise the text of Flat Stanley then using what they know write their own version.
The children then design their own Flat Stanley character and we will post it along with a letter to a member of their family or friends and await a reply back to school (good old fashion Royal Mail delivery) the family member or friend will do exciting things with Flat Stanley and tell them all about it in their reply.
A recount will be based on walking to a post box as a class to post the letter.
The resources include a letter for parents asking for a stamp and explaining what is happening with the letters for a family member.
Children will then write another narrative about what their own Flat Stanley character has been up to.
Geography: Flat Stanley will visit UK/London, France, North America and Australia
