The Anglo Institute of Education would like to share some great online resources that will help teachers to plan engaging and creative Reading and Writing Skills classes for primary students, even at a distance. All of these resources were shared by the UK Department for Education and can be used to develop initial phonological awareness and usage in younger learners and to inspire older primary school aged students to read for pleasure and write creatively.
