Duck in the Truck is our summer term reading book in Gold Class. We enjoy our shared story time session each morning. This takes the form of a call and response activity. A staff member reads out the main points from the story. The children are encouraged to respond.
We have plenty of props to accompany our storytelling time. The children enjoy playing with the puppets, as well as some items that make the sounds we can hear in the story.
Some of the higher level pupils have advanced to understanding the Makaton signing in the story. We use these to help explain what is happening throughout the book.
Our artwork in Gold Class is also related to the Duck in the Truck book. Each class member has carried out some painting using a truck. We had great fun rolling the toy trucks in paint, and then creating a pattern.
