Rebecca Langley, Year 13, has designed a unique book to help develop a range of skills for children in early years.
As part of her extended project qualification, which is a Level 3 qualification equivalent to an AS grade or half an A Level, she had to produce an independent piece of work.
Her only brief was to produce either a 5,000 word essay or a product/artefact that she created herself (accompanied by a 1,000 word essay).
Rebecca produced a ‘Quiet Book’ which was intended for use with 3 to 5-year-olds and an adult.
She assessed the impact of the Quiet Book by trying it out with children from the local Sure Start Centre and a family member. Each page has been uniquely designed to focus on a specific skill e.g. numbers, colours, fine motor skills, literacy etc.
