Lizzie and the Birds is a beautifully illustrated story from the writing team of Mick and Dawn Robertson.
The story explores the relationship between Lizzie and her dad and is a story about an unlikely friendship that develops between Lizzie and a group of rambunctious birds. This charming story, and its captivating artwork, is one that pupils in First and Second Classes will fall in love with.
While being developed, it was trialled in many classes to overwhelmingly positive reviews and the ideas that came from both pupils and teachers showed the scope for further learning opportunities and the potential for creative expression.
Written by an experienced teacher and English Language consultant, this book has enormous potential as a springboard for oral language, leading into further reading and writing activities. This book can be used for Guided Reading, or as a whole-class story to develop oral language skills.
With the new Language Curriculum, and its emphasis on oral language, both this book, and its corresponding Teachers Guide, are fantastic resources to use to support your teaching and the pupil’s learning.
