The King of Walls - Evaluation Story

img
The King of Walls - Evaluation Story The King of Walls is a new story taken from Thinking Stories 3 which will be published late 2019.

As with Thinking Stories 1 and Surprising Stories the aim is to get children, teachers and their parents fully immersed in a story that will inspire them to develop essential thinking skills and Literacy skills.

Each story can be extended and applied to school curricula with 'Think it Through' and 'Take it Further' questions at the end. What would work best for you in these sections?

I'd welcome any feedback on how you use the story with your pupils, students or colleagues, and what they think of it. Thanks.
