What's in a pack?

A brand-new chapter

The latest chapter of a specially-written serialised book. Read on tablets, on laptops, with print out copies, or together via an interactive whiteboard, highlighting important words as you read.

Guided reading resources

Each book chapter inspires a host of printable resources for class use. Comprehension quizzes, SPaG worksheets, sequencing activities, and open ended questions - they're all in one place.

Writing activities

Practice diverse forms of writing using the provided scaffolded writing templates. Children can write a news report, compare the two main characters or dream up their version of the next chapter.
