“The Teaching from Text English schemes have been invaluable to me and my team this year. Having used three schemes so far, I have found that they save us hours in planning and are very easy to follow. The schemes are engaging for the children and include lovely, hand drawn artwork, which really helps the children to imagine what is happening in the stories. They already have differentiation included, which has also been a fantastic time-saver for us and helps to ensure that all children are able to access the English. The schemes are also editable, so they are easy to adapt if needed. We have used both the English and guided reading schemes and will definitely continue to do so!"

“I can highly recommend the schemes of work from 'Teaching from Text'. I have used many of these schemes of work both in school and for home learning during lockdown in January 2021. They have been amazing and use some wonderful, well-chosen texts that both the teachers and the children enjoyed. The units of work are well-paced and cover a range of genre and SPaG objectives from the National Curriculum. The lessons are carefully planned and thorough with differentiated activities for the children. The schemes are supported with excellent videos explaining the SPaG objectives, examples to put on 'Working Walls' and practical tips lesson by lesson.”
“As a Teaching Assistant, I've been really impressed with the whole 'Teaching From Text' experience. The children have been so gripped by the texts they have chosen (when chapters end, they're always left wanting more) and the differentiated activities are so accessible for learners of different abilities. I'd heartily recommend these resources!”
"I have downloaded week one of Cave Girl. It looks brilliant!! I teach Year 3 and will be downloading all of the available Y3 units of work. It’s not easy to find high quality English resources, I’m thrilled I have discovered this!"
“I have taught English in both primary and secondary settings and used a range of resources; rarely have I come across one as comprehensive as yours at such a great price point. I am so impressed by what you have created so far and keen to see what’s next.”

"I have found the resources invaluable in planning my work this term. There is plenty of detail in the powerpoints that can be easily adapted for my class. The differentiation in tasks is a real bonus. The pack is excellent value for money.
I will definitely be coming back for more."
