Reading

A3 sheets decorated with favourite characters. Titles and authors of top ten books were written on paper strips and stuck to the 'ladder' in the middle. Whenever they wanted to add a new title, the children just moved others down and attached the 'old favourites' to the bottom of the sheet - a bit like tassels.
