Families and Partnerships


Publishers, Theatres and other organisations

Need an education pack or teaching sequence for a book, play, film or event?

We create quality resources, which have strong links to the new National Curriculum 2014.  We specialise in writing Teaching Sequences which comprise of a series of engaging lessons that build upon one another and have learning objectives, pupil success criteria, clear resources and can make your book, play, film or event come to life in the classroom!  We run training courses for Local Authorities and lead on staff meetings and Insets in schools where we can promote and share these resources.  We are happy to organise an author visit to a school in conjunction with a teaching sequence we have written.

Working with teachers, and being teachers ourselves, we have a strong understanding of how to get the best out of a book.

Recent commissions include a teaching sequence for the National Theatre’s production of ‘WarHorse’ (see page 38) and for Abrams and Chronicle‘s recent releases  ‘The Templeton Twins Have an Idea’ by Ellis Weiner and ‘The Strange Case of Origami Yoda’ by Tom Angleberger, for which we worked directly with the publishers to organise a series of school visits, which you can read about in our blog.  We have also worked directly with authors, recently producing a teaching sequence for Irfan Master’s ‘A Beautiful Lie’ and Polly Ho-Yen on a sequence for 'Boy in the Tower' which we used as part of our Grammar project training this year.

We also like to work with other organisations. Last year we were commisioned with Stepney City Farm to create their Self-guided Literacy trails. We also created a series of resources for Discover Story Centre's 'Wonderful World of Oliver Jeffers' exhibition.

If you would like to commission a teaching sequence, education pack or buy in some consultancy support to help you create your own resources, contact us.


Fancy becoming part of our ever-growing family tree?

The Literacy Tree is committed to working with families to enrich children’s lives through a shared love of Literacy.  We believe that parents have the right to the same knowledge about how children learn to read and write as their teachers.  That’s why our work with families balances theory with tried-and-tested practical activities.  Part of our philosophy is that every child should learn about Literacy through literature.
