This Primary Update special brings you our informative Back-to-School toolkit and looks at the power behind reading for pleasure. We look at supporting your CPD with the Professional Development Academy, explore what's new in Bug Club Phonics, Power Maths and more!
Welcome Back-to-School toolkit
In case you missed it, our Back-to-School toolkit has everything from blogs and tips on back to school to topping up on resources. The toolkit gathers everything from Pearson all in one place to support you with the weeks ahead.
Reading for just 10 minutes every day can improve your mental wellbeing, which is just one of the many reasons we see reading for pleasure as a priority. We begin to explore this in these blogs, the first 2 in a series of blogs coming out this Autumn term.
46 new books added to our DfE approved Bug Club Phonics!
We’ve listened to your feedback and are pleased to say we've added 46 new books to the Bug Club Phonics collection!
we've added six Phase 1 titles where we had none before and have also added teaching ideas to accompany them in the Bug Club Phonics whole-class teaching subscription.
we've introduced non-fiction titles to Phase 2 where before it had none and where we know your children need lots of practice as they start learning phonics.
extra titles to Phases 4 and 5 complete the additions and you can expect the same high quality as the existing Bug Club Phonics books.
The new titles include beautifully illustrated tales as well as interesting and discussion-provoking non-fiction titles. Take your pick from topical themes such as spending time with grandparents, going on walks to local parks and spending more time at home as well as green energy sources and cleaning up beaches.
All are 100% decodable and matched to Bug Club Phonics’ proven progression which complements Letters and Sounds 2007.
