No mages on powerpoint and worksheet due to copy rights, however if you have the book please refer to those images.
Children loved the different activities particularly the maths challenge and instruction writing.
Instruction writing - I had pupils draw an image similar to the one from the book where all the chicks are laying the chocolate eggs and then they completed their writing which was cut out and stuck on over the top to give the same effect as in the book.
Maths: It helped some pupils who were struggling to have physical resources to support them, or even drawing out what it was they were problem solving.
