As I type, it is hotter than a rehearsal hall hosting a two-form KS2 summer production. Trust me – that’s hot. Sometimes lacking in freshness too. This – however – is box-fresh. Our English newsletter autumn 2016. We hope you are continuing to enjoy your well-earned summer break, but thought some of you might appreciate a preview of this before we publish it on our main website in September.
This issue covers a range of topics – we have poetry, grammar, spelling. We also have an article on shared writing : we’ve been writing some very exciting training for this so thought we’d pave the way. There has also been lots of talk of great picture books this summer on twitter – you might be interested to read an article that takes a look at this vibrant form. Finally, we have some reviews of some wonderful books. Warning: may include a reference to a Christmas book. Yes it is early, but this really is a timeless classic and it would be wonderful if it had an even bigger audience.
Enjoy now or save for later. Happy holidays. Happy reading.
