Literacy Across Learning

Literacy-based learning with SmartReads stretches across the curriculum to offer real breadth of learning. This encourages pupils to make meaningful links with other subjects and reflect more deeply on the themes covered in their reading, as well as facilitating them in developing the transferable skills needed for future learning, life and work.



Consider the Source

Facts gleaned from fiction often sit in isolation in a mid-way land of truths taken from make believe. SmartReads learning resources encourage pupils to ask questions about different aspects of the narrative and apply these to their own lives or knowledge and experiences from other curriculum areas.

Build on Facts

Using The Learning Cloud, relevant facts from the stories are highlighted and then explored in tasks reaching out across other areas of the curriculum. Pupils can build out on a theme touched in one curriculum area and really expand their learning.
