This is an exciting, hands-on resource comprising over 200 whole-class lesson plans. These can be used with a class in their very first week at school in Year 1 right through to their last week in Year 6. Each lesson plan focuses on a text, provides prompts for discussion and gives clearly explained, engaging activities to suit all learning styles. The lesson plans are based on 152 popular children's books. There are many cross-curricular opportunities, with specific links to literacy, particularly through the drama, speaking and listening plans of the Renewed Primary Strategy. The scheme also includes Circle Time games specially selected for their positive effect on the emotional well-being of the child. The author, who is an Advanced Skills Teacher, spent two years developing the scheme of work. Each lesson plan has been tried and tested in many schools and is steeped in excellent primary practice. The scheme is designed to support the aims of the Every Child Matters agenda. The plans are differentiated by year group and are set out in modules which each last for six weeks, making the resource a manageable format for class teachers to use and an ideal solution to the delivery of SEAL Primary.
