Help For A Friend Again!


Recommended Posts

I am being asked by a friend for some suggestions for an Interview

She is using the text: The Train Ride

She would like a range of literacy activities and a suggestion for assembly based on trains, or the stories!

Please can anyone advise.

Also interactive activities if poss

Many thanks

Beckyann, will try to get back to you later this weekend. I'm planning to do this in a couple of weeks. I've done it before and we set up a 'train' and ticket office for outdoor play. The children did lots of counting - how many on, how many if one more get on/off etc. Also writing a list of things you'd pack in a rucksack if you were going on a long train journey - book/comics, drink, sandwiches. It's a very repetative book so you could use the same format but go into the town - What do I see .... Railway timetable (simple of course). Made trains from junk materials. Dance - the locomotion.


There is planning for this on the Hamilton website I think.


Sorry, I know you only asked for literacy ideas :o
