Take part in CBeebies live lesson on the magic of storytelling
BookTrust is partnering with CBeebies next week on an interactive lesson for children at primary school, aged 5-7.
The 25-minute live lesson, 'Stories by the Sea', will explore different ways of writing stories.
Inspired by 'Old Jack's Boat: Rockpool Tales', the show will encourage children to create their own fictional tales - and all with a fun, nicely nautical twist.
How to watch along
Teachers can take part by visiting the website on Tuesday 11 October. By following the instructions on the page, they can then tune in live to the lesson and screen it to their class. The lesson starts at 11am.
In the run-up to the week, schools can also download a suggested lesson guide and different teacher resources. These can be used in the classroom either before or after the live lesson.
Spread the love of reading
The live lesson marks the start of the build-up to Children's Book Week, starting 31 October and led by BookTrust.
During this week, schools, libraries, children and parents will join together to celebrate books and reading for pleasure.
