Where does this fit into the school curriculum?
Each of the activities aims at developing the Key Stage 1 child in their fundamental movement skills: agility, balance and co-ordination. As well as this, the children will be thinking about when to select these skills and how to apply them.
These activities also aim to improve the child’s social skills with a partner or within a small group. These skills can then be transferred into the classroom and playground environments. Each activity acknowledges the importance of every individual as a valued part of a team. Successful completion of these tasks requires even the most reticent children to become involved. There is also the opportunity for pupils to become more responsible and to take on leadership roles.
The stories in this book invite the children to take on many different roles, from monkeys serving Wazzoo, the Monkey King, to explorers unearthing treasures in Egypt. Some stories make use of well-known characters, such as Robin Hood, to aid in the construction of the scenario. Others suggest to the children that they find their everyday selves in highly unusual and challenging situations.
In order to assist continuity, and to help some children build a more detailed imaginative context within which to work, a number of the challenges have been set in the fantasy world of Gazaban.
