I'm planning to do the Peace at Last story with my Reception class in the next few weeks to link in with our Bears topic, and wondered if anyone had any pictures that we could use for sequencing? Obviously I can't photocopy the ones from the book due to copyright (this actually came up in a staff meeting last week, quite randomly!), but I would really like full pictures rather than the very simple ones on sites such as Twinkl or the old Sparklebox ones that I used to have a couple of years ago. They don't have to be the exact ones from the book, anything similar would be fine.
Also, I have my guided work sorted, but any ideas for independent and child-initiated activities would be fab also!
Thank you in anticipation!
Could you have some simple pictures of rooms /things which make the noises and then ask them to put them in the order Father Bear goes to them / hears the noises?
Also do you have a visualiser? In which case you could show pages and then elicit where in the story that picture fits.
Individual activities- matching up sounds to the 'noise' words/ music making activities to produce 'animal' sounds / sorting onomatopaeic words / drawing Father Bear's joureney around the house and garden.
Has the world gone daft?? So we aren't allowed to photocopy illustrations to enable children to immerse themselves in a book they enjoy? Surely that's the whole point of children's literature? I looked up copyright law and found this
Acts that are allowed
Fair dealing is a term used to
describe acts which are permitted to a certain degree without infringing
the work, these acts are:
(Profit making organisations and individuals should obtain a license from PRS for Music.)
I am taking this to mean I can use copies in the classroom, and if the old bill come sniffing round I will hide in a cupboard.

Actually we've had this conversation as linguists and my understanding is that; provided you own a copy of the 'said book' you the pictures into a powerpoint for exclusive use with your own classes ie if it's a department you need a copy of the book for each member of staf,f if you share the resources within the department.
Thank you so much for the suggestions, they sound great, and I really like the idea of drawing Mr Bear's route.
Dagnabit, thank you for the copyright info, thats really useful to know too!
