Great read and great resource
on 8 February 2016
Stig of the dump is a fantastic read for children and adults alike, it is a brilliant book to read aloud to both KS1 and KS2 children and as an independent read for KS2 level. The book tackles a wealth of issues within the story and focuses on morality and ethics from the 60's that are still relevant to modern day children. The story can be used to discuss friendship, bullying, right from wrong, stealing, lying, inventions, adventure, ingenuity and recycling, and language barriers. A variety of activities can be based on sections of the story and incorporate elements of literacy, history, PSHE, and art and design.
The areas that this book can relate to and the range of activities that can be based on this story for both KS1 and KS2 make this book a fantastic resource for teachers. However it must be noted that the language in the book can occasionally be difficult for younger readers as the prose is at times very dated and does not always follow modern literary conventions. Although do not let this put you off as Stig of the Dump is a great read and a fantastic resource.
