New resource for primary teachers

The front cover of the resource

We're delighted to share with you a brand new FREE resource for teachers of English at primary school.

The aim of this guidance is to:

  • Support student teachers and newly qualified teachers with planning engaging literacy units based on high quality children’s literature, providing guidance and exemplar materials.
  • To demonstrate how linked sequences of lessons can be devised which ensure progression and lead to meaningful outcomes.

This suite of editable resources can be adapted to your classroom and a text of your choice.

The guidance covers a variety of writing outcomes and teaching approaches:

  • Extended writing
  • Shorter writing tasks
  • Ongoing writing opportunities
  • Reading aloud and booktalk
  • Respond to illustration
  • Storytelling
  • Story whoosh
  • Story mapping
  • Freeze frame and thought tracking
  • Role play
  • Drawing and annotation

We're very grateful to Sue McGonigle for creating this resource, and to the Association for providing the funding that enabled the Primary Education Committee to commission the resource. Thank you also to Beverley Naidoo and Marjan Vafaian for the wonderful book, Cinderella of the Nile (Tiny Owl) upon which this resource is based.
