The Promise and CLPE
On Earth Day, 22 April 2021, we announced our special collaboration with the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education [CLPE].
To help support primary schools with the back to school transition in September, CLPE’s expert team has created a whole school teaching unit featuring The Promise and explore how school communities and learning together and grow together. Alongside The Promise, two more key texts are featured Errol’s Garden by Gillian Hibbs and The Secret Sky Garden by Linda Sarah and Fiona Lumbers.
These learning resources will use high quality children’s literature to engage children in high quality talk, reading and writing activities as they return to a new school year after a year where learning has been disrupted by the continued impact of COVID. The unit will engage the whole school community in a project that results in positive action for change in their local community, through planting in the local area.
