Research by the Education Endowment Foundation has confirmed that developing metacognition (supporting pupils to think about and develop themselves as learners) is a strategy with high and proven impact. The activities in this book support this process by encouraging pupils to independently think and talk about their writing and reading choices.
In recent years, the volume and nature of the curriculum has led to many schools separating the different skills in the curriculum from subject to subject; the activities in this book strengthen the relationship between the different skills so that pupils make links and connections in their learning, whichever lesson they're in.
These 50 activities are fun, creative and can be easily adapted by teachers - with links to additional resources available online. Each one has been tried and tested by author Mark McCaughan, who is currently supporting schools where performance was low in the Reading SATs, and using the activities to great effect. A perfect resource for any teacher looking to develop literacy skills across the curriculum, and help their pupils gain confidence in reading and writing.
