These resources are intended to support the planning of effective literacy units based on high quality picture books. They are not intended to be lesson plans, but offer a menu of possible ideas for teachers to use as starting points to plan for purposeful learning and give pupils reasons for writing, as well as the skills they need to write with impact on their reader.

They follow a learning sequence:

· a hook to fully engage and interest the children;
· responding to reading activities to allow
   immersion in and exploration of the text,
   including picture exploration, book and writer
   talk;
· capturing ideas activities which include drama
   and talk to support understanding of the text
   and to develop vocabulary, language and ideas
   for writing;
· possibilities for the contextualised teaching of
   grammar;
· sentence games to develop creativity, vocabulary,
   language and grammar;
· links to guided reading;
· a range of writing tasks which may be final unit
   outcomes or incidental opportunities during the
   unit.

Specific mention is made of the writing sequence:

· modelled writing
· shared writing
· guided writing

In addition, cross-curricular links are suggested, including links to challenges from the Learning Challenge Curriculum.

The picture books included are:
