KS1/2 English - A Good Read - Man on the Moon

Description

A mixed ability Year 2 group have their resistance to books broken by the popular picture book, Man on the Moon.

Teacher Kerry Gallagher uses the hidden meanings to provide her class with a sense of secret belonging and ownership to both the story and its characters.

Guardian children's book reviewer and CLPE co-director Julia Eccleshare argues for the role of picture books in early literacy work, and author Simon Bartram shares some of his working methods.

Teachers are encouraged to trust their own judgement when choosing texts and to remember that literacy goes beyond reading and writing performance.
