Thank you to everyone that attended our webinar with Ross Young and Phil Ferguson yesterday. We hope you found it informative and it gave you some ideas to take away and try in the classroom. 

If you missed it or want to watch again with colleagues, you can find the recording here.

Ross and Phil are also the authors of our brand new writing programme, Power English: Writing.  It’s a new, dynamic and evidence-based writing approach which is genre-focused and encourages children to write for pleasure.

Take part in a new international writing competition

To celebrate International Literacy Day (8th September 2019) we launched a brand new international writing competition, My Twist on a Tale. We're encouraging budding young writers to tear up the rule book and give their 21st century take on classic tales by creating their own book stories that reflect their personal interests, heritage, background and experiences. 

What a perfect way to put all those new writing for pleasure strategies into practice with your class. 

Register now to receive your entry pack. 

Take a look at what Ross and Phil will be looking for as part of the judging panel...
