Well I've started the directed time task, and am already loving dipping into some of my old favourite books. The first of these was 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen.
It's such a fun book to read! I think it'd be perfect for a regular story time for those in Reception/Foundation stages of school. There are also some really useful resources available for free online just by googling the book. For example, I found a powerpoint presentation of the book which was available to download. The only downside to that was that it didn't use the original drawings from the book, and they are well worth keeping in an e-version of the text.
The book allows plenty of scope for action and adventure to take place in a drama setting in the classroom, which children would absolutely love. It also allows for a good exploration of phonics and of onomatopoeic language. I loved reading it again. Not sure if that says more about the book or about myself...
