Gold Award and Coming Soon ….

October 16, 2012

I am delighted to share the exciting news that my comprehension series, published by Schofield and Sims, has won a Gold Award in the Primary Teacher Update Awards. The judges said they ‘cannot go wrong’, and described the series as ‘a very useful resource with excellent grading criteria.’  The four books provide more than 72 texts in total, and are a permanent record of the child’s work.

    Meanwhile, look out for a new anthology of 100  poems out soon:

A TIME TO SPEAK & A TIME TO LISTEN. This beautiful anthology contains poems old and modern, some appearing for the first time in this book.

TEACHERS look out for the accompanying guidebook that is packed with ways to use the anthology in the classroom, to enhance children’s enjoyment of poetry (and your own too!) while developing speaking and listening skills. From close reading and performing to dramatising and discussing, as well as using the poems in thoughtful, thematic assemblies, there is a wealth of material for use in the Key Stage 2 classroom.

    Congratulations, what wonderful news. But as someone who loves your poems on blip, I’m not at all surprised!

    And hope you will let us know when and where to order the new anthology!
