Jane will be using The Writing Rainbow and The Writing Rainbow Symbols during the lessons. It is not essential that you have these yourself, however many have found it beneficial to have supporting resources for the lessons. The live lessons work in line with the concepts in Jane's best selling book, The Write Stuff.

Above all, we hope that you find the live lessons useful and enjoyable for your children. We hope that the #LiveLessons bring structure, fun and a little bit of normality to an otherwise difficult time.
