Launch Into Literacy Book 1

Series Editor: Keith Gaines

A course to inspire the highest literacy skills in today's children, Launch into Literacy is a structured five-book course for 6 to 11 year-olds. It addresses the reading, writing, and study of a full range of text types across fiction and non-fiction. Each unit is based around the study of a particular text type and purpose for writing.

  • Writing to inform-recount and report
  • Writing to entertain-the major types of fiction, including stories and plays
  • Writing to express-poetry
  • Writing to instruct-instructions and directions
  • Writing to persuade-persuasion and argument
  • Writing to explain-explanation

In each unit, children read and study a lead text, undertake activities related to the key language points, and then write their own text in the same genre. This gives valuable guidance for shared and guided writing.

The strengths of Launch into Literacy are:

  • Specially written to cover the National Literacy Strategy range of texts
  • Teaches language knowledge in context and develops skills needed to write in different genres
  • Activities include reading, comprehension, written composition, grammar and punctuation, and word-level work
  • Posters provide a large laminated version of the study texts ideally suited to whole-class and group teaching, and are easy to annotate and wipe clean
