Eifron Watkinson, Addington School, Reading takes a look at Read & Respond Interactive: Farmer Duck for us.
Children were engaged with the animated film clips. They wanted to play them over several times. They were able to link them to the pictures in the book.
Text annotations were too difficult for the younger children but the KS2 co-ordinator agreed they would be good for her children, (we are a special needs school)
Work led onto performing a drama for other classes to watch that the children had written for themselves.
All the KS1 and Foundation Stage teachers were impressed by the resource which gave them new ideas based on a familiar book.
As co-ordinator I would buy this DVD for school as it was easy to use, provided motivating activities for staff and pupils and saved a lot of planning time.
I was able to use this supplemented by symbols from Widget programme. Great fun to use.
