Courage and bravery are so often portrayed as overt, physical heroics, involving dramatic rescues and acts of daring but isn’t courage other things, too? Daring to follow a dream is…
“Because the texts are so engaging children (and adults) are quickly drawn into them. This supports their vocabulary and reading skills as well as supporting their writing.”
“Thanks to The Literacy Tree, we’ve now got once-reluctant writers whose first question on arriving in the morning is, “are we looking at our book today?” and cheering when the answer is yes.”
“Planning sequences are simple to follow, full of innovative ideas and often come with resources attached. The quality of writing in school has significantly improved, and the plans support our creative yet academic culture.”
“The approach adopted by the Literary Curriculum has ignited a passion for writing across our community, transformed our English provision and raised the standards of writing in all key stages. We cannot thank you enough!”
“The clear and detailed planning sequences are another huge advantage of the Literary Curriculum. This solid foundation gives teacher the time to consider how to personalise the learning to the needs of particular classes, as well unleashing enormously imaginative ‘hooks’ into a book.”
“The English teaching culture at our school has really progressed. The teachers have really enjoyed the sequences as they can clearly see the advantages of a thematic approach to teaching English and have seen the progress the children have made.”
“Because of the quality texts, bespoke CPD and expert consultancy, we are the most improved school for writing in our Local Authority. Our children’s love and knowledge of literature has grown exponentially, and our staff are thoroughly enjoying teaching the planning sequences. This has all been achieved in our first year of implementing and working with The Literacy Tree!”
Our flagship schools have been chosen for their innovative use of our book-based approach across the curriculum. They have adopted and adapted our planning sequences to complement their own topics or use our themes. Our flagship schools enjoy sharing how they have used the sequences to support engagement and raise attainment in English with new schools looking to change their pedagogy and curriculum. If you wish to visit any of these schools, we can arrange a suitable time to visit. Alternatively, if you are interested in finding out about becoming a flagship school, do contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
