Pre-Formal Texts

This is a working document to show progression in resources to support stories across the school. The literature suggested in the table below are linked to the theme for the half term. Teachers can select 1 or more resources from the list to study each half term.

Teachers are encouraged to write their own stories, tailored to the needs of their group. Base these on the texts listed in the semi-formal/formal text document for the appropriate age range. Add text to this document and resources to the server.
