Towards the end of the academic year, my Year 4 class were learning all about the Stone Age. Part of the topic focused on learning about how Stone Age houses evolved as the lifestyle changed for people. One of the activities the pupils were challenged with was to try and sell a Neolithic House. Using a range of apps, the pupils were able to bring their writing to life in a creative and purposeful way.

I recently discovered a bit of a game changer when it comes to accessing engaging texts to use in class, see the video here: It has inspired an incredible English project where we deconstructed the model text from the film before writing and performing our own audio descriptions over one of my favourite clips from Infinity War.
