What do teachers have to say about this resource? (7824)
'Excellent. They are very clear and are great to enhance your teaching. The work is done for you!' J Caro, Teacher and ZigZag Education Customer
"This is a great resource to familiarise students with the reading of longer texts to prepare them to read a novel. I am sure it can be used either in Year 1 or 2, but I think it would be ideal to use it with Year 1 students to prepare them before starting with the novel. Apart from this, the resource offers excellent activities for translation, reading comprehension, writing, debates and vocabulary learning. It’s extremely comprehensive."
