Teachers are praising a groundbreaking new literacy resource that helps 4-7-year-olds to learn grammar, punctuation, syntax and storytelling.

Revolutionary new Mighty Writer uses picture tiles to help children construct sentences to tell stories. They stick the tiles to soft-touch mats and toolbars using hook and loop fastening.

Mighty Writer teaches speaking and listening, composition, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation in an easy way that enables children to engage – and reduces teacher workload.

Why stretching primary education’s resources can’t continue. In wake of the recent deadline for primary school applications, teachers and parents alike have been expressing concern. The dwindling number of school places, the increasing size of classes and the continued budget cuts that are stretching resources to breaking point are all important factors which limit our teachers’ ability to provide the proper safeguarding for vulnerable children.
