Books & More

A series of creative writing resources to help promote literacy and self-expression including the popular Book List reading list and a range of Assembly Ideas and Poems to support school linking work.  

These teaching resources are based on the SLN theme “Our World Through Words”, and are helpful for work around Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development.

One of SLN’s themes for 2012 / 2013 is ‘Our World Through Words’ and we are encouraging you to get involved and take part.  Creative writing is not only a wonderful form of expression, but also a fantastic way of working together and linking across communities, schools and different age groups.

Our experience of working with young people across the country has taught us that a creative use of words and language is, for some people, the most liberating way to say just how they feel.

SLN’s Activities Book List provides a fantastic selection of books selected to support activities referred to in SLN’s Classroom and Linking Resources, ideal for use in assemblies and as inspiration for learning.

The SLN Let’s Read Together initiative aims to share ideas about books and develop IT knowledge and skills.  We are encouraging schools to set up Quad Blogging sessions.

We frequently use poems in our resources and over the years we’ve collated some wonderful examples, which we’d love to share with you … explore the many Poems on the Website for a selection of verse written by both published poets and students involved in SLN linking programmes.
