Hi there, I'm hoping to find someone, who could possibly help me with my English planning for next year. Since some of you are so much more experienced in the world of primary, you might be able to help me out. I'm moving from a middle to a primary school in September and have been told I'm supposed to teach through set books, use talk for writing, etc. now, I'm reading the books and have a few ideas of what I'd like to do with them. My question is, however, how on Earth are you supposed to get through such long texts in lesson times? I've taught using books before, but those were shorter books and I tended to have class sets. My lesson times are also reduced from 10 hours of English/Humanities to 5 hours per week. Anybody got any fabulous ideas? Trying to get audiobook copies for the books, but is there anything else I can do? Just sitting listening to me read is ok every now and then, but not for that amount of time. I'd also rather they were able to follow the text in their own copy. Is there a reason why there aren't any class sets being used for this? Still trying to get my head round all of this. Thanks.
