Mal Leicester and Roger Twelvetrees Adventure Stories for Reading, Learning and Literacy takes a unique approach to cross-curricular teaching in the primary classroom. Providing eight original adventure stories, the authors build up a suite of resources and activities for teachers to use in the classroom, providing cross curricular links in line with the PNS framework, to literacy, science, PE, design and technology, numeracy, geography and history. Though the stories will interest both girls and boys, they take special care to appeal to boys, who are known to achieve less highly than girls in reading and writing, and include themes such as: • cars

• football

• heroic deeds

• space and aliens.

• ghosts and ghouls

Each story is linked explicitly to moral and social values, and can be used to reinforce citizenship, PHSE and SEAL initiatives in primary schools.

The Countdown series provides all the support you need in helping children to improve their prose, poetry and non-fiction writing.

Countdown to Non-Fiction Writing

Margaret Mallett Choosing and Using Fiction and Non-Fiction 3-11 is a guide to the many kinds of text we want children to encounter, use and enjoy during their nursery and primary school years. So children’s non-fiction literature - including autobiography, biography, information and reference texts - is given equal status with fiction, nursery rhymes, picturebooks, traditional tales, playscripts and poetry. It also contains suggestions for practice which are in the spirit of the flexibility and creativity recommended in The Rose Report which informs the revised Primary Curriculum. It includes: • help on using criteria to select quality texts of all kinds •a  nnotated booklists for each kind of text for different age groups • s uggestions for keeping a balance between print and screen-based texts • c ase studies showing teachers and children using texts in interesting and imaginative ways to support learning in English lessons and across the curriculum •a  dvice on developing children’s visual and multimodal literacy •g  uidance on using the school library and embedding study skills in children’s wider purposes and learning • c ritiques of key theoretical perspectives and research projects.

Step by Step Approach to Writing Techniques for 7-12 Years

‘ The modules Steve Bowkett has put together will take pupils on a fascinating, empowering and thoroughly enjoyable journey through language, taking in the nature of truth and reality, the politics of persuasion, and a mysteriously disappeared chicken leg on the way...and at the end of it, they will not only be better writers, but wiser readers, listeners and consumers too.

Active Homework

Coming S


Activity-based Learning

Vicki Parfitt, Colin Forster and Andrea McGowan Illustrator: David Brookes Maths Homework for Key Stage 2

Everyone knows the usual homework drill: pupils take a worksheet home, fill it in, and return it to the teacher to be marked and recorded. With the government suggesting that by years 5 and 6 children should get 30 minutes of homework every evening, national tests to prepare for in year 6 and a sea of homework books with nothing but worksheets in them, it’s no wonder that timepressured teachers see their homework options as somewhat limited. The Active Homework series offers teachers an all-round solution to this problem. Rather than being a set of worksheets that pupils have to ’fill in’ and teachers have to ’mark and record’, it’s a suite of activities, aligned to the national curriculum subject and topic areas, that children can do and discuss at home. Their discussions can be with a parent (or anyone else at home). If they want to, parents can comment or feedback to the teacher by using the evaluation slip provided. Teachers can reinforce learning during follow-up discussions in the classroom. The activities will foster active and collaborative learning in pupils, are easy and quick for teachers to manage and, importantly, invite parents or other family members to get involved with the child’s learning.
