Collins Big Cat has teamed up with award-winning educational developers, Shoo Fly, to create new cross-curricular E-Resources to accompany the Collins Big Cat reading series. Collins Big Cat E-Resources are rooted in the books, but extend learning to develop every aspect of pupils' literacy skills. E-Resources contain: * a beautifully animated version of the book, including audio and music, to inspire children of all abilities * a sound bank to develop speaking and listening skills * up to ten interactive whiteboard activities and activity sheets to develop and extend learning * Story Creator software, to help children convert reading into writing by using images from the book to create their own texts * comprehensive teacher's notes. These resources can be used on PCs and interactive whiteboards. The steam train is pulling out of the station, it heads to the hills, into a rainstorm, through a tunnel and out the other side into the sunshine and to the seaside. Follow the rhythm and the rhyme of this simple poem and travel with the train on its wonderful adventure, beautifully illustrated by Rosalind Hudson.
