2 July 2018

This year we are launching a Little Read for Durham and are giving away copies of the picture book Izzy Gizmo by Pip Jones and Sara Ogilvie. We will be sending a copy of the book to every primary school in Durham along with teachers’ resources matched to National Curriculum objectives and providing material for PHSE lessons – adaptable for pupils in EYFS and KS1.

We are particularly interested in raising literacy levels in Durham and can offer a FREE set of up to 10 additional books per school, if your school has a project relating to this. Please contact grace@newwritingnorth.com if you would like to apply for copies.

Sets of up to fifty FREE copies of this year’s Big Read, The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters, a chilling  ghost story with Gothic elements, will also be available to schools. These will also be accompanied by a teaching resource pack for Sixth Form pupils.
