Well, you never know when you do these things, but I was thrilled that this one succeeded. We listened to the audio book version of the novel, Mr Stink, by David Walliams (from Little Britain fame – it was read by himself and Matt Lucas) and completed a long series of activities to develop our comprehension and listening skills. You can see the book on our bookshelf and on the Class News section on the links to the right of this page. One of our activities took us into letter writing and as an incentive we wrote to David Walliams to say just how much we loved the book. Well, to his eternal credit we received a letter, a signed photo and another of his books for the class to read. The students were thrilled, as you’d imagine, and so was I. Real world tasks are especially purposeful when they are rewarded in such a way.
