Fun with Marble Runs!

Sharing beautiful stories with our girls is the highlight of my school day. After reading Different Like Coco by Elizabeth Matthews and discussing many of the issues which arise from the story, and happen to fit in nicely with our ‘words’ and ‘phrases’ this term, we looked at making a marble run which included a quiz feature to allow the marble to complete the run. The girls then had a go with books they enjoyed.

Below are some of the fabulous results!
