These activities provide opportunities for discussion about how language works, springboards for creative writing and scaffolding for writing in different genres. Above all they emphasise the vital role talk has in preparing for reading and writing. If you would like to explore the research that underpins our approach to literacy, please read and share the little book on the left which can be obtained from UKLA.

It is available in digital form for those of you too far away to wait for the postie on a bicycle oops electric van.

We presented our minibooks at our most recent National Writing Project session "teachers who teach writing should write!"
Our new revised webpage tries to make each activity clear in one poster. You will of course find lots more oracy to literacy in context on the subject activity pages. We have revised and updated many of the activities. Most recent activity on the right.


We shared this at the recent LATE/BFI conference: Nightmare on the English Corridor.
