Event Description
Plan 3 – featuring ‘Lift’ by Minh Lê, illustrated by Dan Santat.

The Herts for Learning whole school explore and engage units are designed to involve all year groups across Key Stages 1 and 2 in the collective exploration of a superb book, leading to high-quality outcomes in reading, writing and spoken language for all year groups. The core text is selected for its ability to provoke reactions and responses from children across the specified age range.

In this webinar, subject leaders will be introduced to a new explore and engage unit and guided through how the selected text and accompanying unit plan can be used to support quality outcomes in English for all year groups across KS1 and KS2.

Delegates will receive Plan 3, featuring the text ‘Lift’ by Minh Lê, illustrated by Dan Santat, when attending this session.
