Read full description of the books:
Katie Morag and the Two Grannies by Mairi Hedderwick is a story about Two very different grandmothers; granny mainland the stylish granny from the big city, and granny island the granny who's more at home in her wellies working on the farm. During the island of Struays big annual show, granny islands prize winning sheep gets covered in mud, but Katie Morag saves the day by cleaning her up with granny mainlands abundance of beauty products.
I have seen this book used with a key stage 2 class over a variety of subjects. The class were weeks away from a summer fair, and taking the character Mrs Bayview and her garden as a starting point they planned a flower sale.
The children worked on their persuasive writing skills to produce leaflets and used their art skills to make posters to advertise the sale. Some groups also recorded a radio commercial using voice recorders which they then played to the rest of the class. The children decided where they should hang their posters and plotted these co-ordinates on a map. On another day they grew flowers for the garden sale and learnt how flowers grow. Finally they practiced their skills with handling money for when they would need to take change at the sale.
The children really engaged with the book by completing these projects, and had loads of fun selling the plants they had grown at the sale.
