Read the book with the children and discuss about make believe and reality. This also gives the opportunity to discuss with the children about how Max spoke to his Mother & how rude he was. Talking about managing feelings and behavior.

Upon returning to school the bean growing experiment could be taken further by recording growth and placing some of the bean bags in a dark place to make comparisons with the children about plants needing light to grow.

The children could spend more time and make a special dance to recreate the ‘Rumpus’ when they return to school
