"Role-play can help pupils to identify with and explore characters and to try out the language they have listened to.” Draft National Curriculum for English

We've teamed up with Julia Donaldson to launch an exciting new range of Plays to Read and Plays to Act for Bug Club at KS1.

Building fluency, encouraging reading with expression and enhancing comprehension - plays are just another exciting way to turn kids into life-long readers!
