Pathways to Write catch-up programme

Here you will find more information about our brand-new catch-up units designed to address the gaps in learning your pupils may have due to the tricky times we have found ourselves in.

The theme of the units is ‘Keep Believing’ with a range of texts celebrating the achievements of inspirational people in response to Black Lives Matter.

Each unit comprises 15 sessions and is designed to be delivered over 3 to 4 weeks.

The focus of each unit is the recap of basic key skills from previous learning and the opportunity to apply these skills across a range of short writing tasks. Skills that pupils may not have yet mastered have been built into the units. Each unit provides an opportunity for an extended writing task as an outcome.

There are 6 individual units based around 3 engaging texts:

Year 1 and Year 2 – Look Up! By Nathan Bryan

Year 3 and Year 4 – Counting on Katherine by Helaine Becker

Year 5 and Year 6 – Of Thee I Sing by Barack Obama

Similar outcomes and tasks are provided in the Y3 & Y4 units and Y5 & Y6 units with some adaptions of skills and modelled writing to suit the priority of the different year groups.

The catch-up units will be available from Monday 6th July and are now available to pre-order. Purchase online by clicking on the products below or email
