Case Study Package: Etherington brothers

The Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour with the Etherington Brothers visited schools in North and South Lanarkshire in May 2013. Primary teacher Paula Jeffreys (Ladywell Primary School) used this opportunity to create cross curricular links with both Art and ICT.  

By using the Etherington Brothers visit as inspiration and encouraging her class to create their own comic strips and animations, Ladywell Primary managed brilliantly to create links between different subject areas. Paula writes a fantastic blog about her experience and the benefits of cross-curricular learning - read this and have a peek at the animation below.

The high energy of the Etherington brothers had all the schools excited - have a look at some of our tour photos and our amazing completed comic feedback forms!
