Ollie The Enterprising Octopus - Curricular Links - Creativity

'' Ollie the Enterprising Octopus Resource Pack is a stimulus for teachers to use in their enterprising teaching and learning. Noted below are some cross curricular ideas'. Our idea is that the personal skill being taught will permeate through all other lessons in the classroom that week, to help the childrens' understanding. If you have any other ideas, please email them to us and we will include them in our blog. Thank you.''

Creative Writing - imagine you are ………….
Drama - teacher provides story beginning and pupils role play their ending.
Music - create an “Ollie” song.
Maths - challenge pupils to think of ways to learn times tables with fun.
