Story Time with Local Author Sarah Corkill

Pupils in KS1 had story time with a difference today! Local author Sarah Corkill visited them and read her amazing story Maggie Magazine Gets Recycled.

This story enabled the children to make predictions about what Maggie Magazine would be turned into next. We know that learners need to recap on ideas in order to store knowledge into their long term memory and Sarah’s book was all about materials so they were able to draw on their scientific knowledge in this area, while also learning about recycling and how we can take care of our world.

The children listened and made thoughtful comments and asked questions about where Sarah’s inspiration had come from in writing the book. It left the children feeling enthused about stories, junk modelling and recycling!
