Looking to inspire story writing with your KS1 pupils?  Need a teaching resource that will bring storytelling to life for them?  

 

Reading Pictures, Writing Stories offers a visual way of teaching literacy by using thought-provoking images to engage pupils, capture their imagination and encourage reading and writing.

 

The package comprises: 

 

  • A Teacher’s Book featuring teaching and learning plans for KS1 - Years 1 and 2 - plus a sequence of work and supporting activity sheets.
     
  • A CD featuring a series of thought-provoking photographs and texts, designed to give children the inspiration and the confidence to produce their own creative story writing. This also provides a great way of integrating simple ICT into literacy work.
