The Teacher Squad Podcast - Spring Term 2024 Episode 12

Spring Term 2024 Episode 12 - Reading interconnected-ness, familiar picture books and a bit of homework!

Join Jane Considine & Heather Wright for discussions and ideas around interconnected ideas in reading and using familiar texts for challenging writing opportunities.

This week, Jane is grateful for remembering lots of things, while Heather is grateful for chances to shine!

In Sentence of the Week, Jane shares an extract from The Nowhere Emporium to really model how we can get pupils to find connections in the text, while Heather shares how familiar texts can be used to support writing for pleasure.

In this week’s Wonder of Words, Jane brings us amazing hair with super powers, while Heather invites us into The Big Bad Dragon Club.
