  • "The Big Writing Adventures resources are straightforward to deliver and there's minimal planning required. It would be easy to adapt the lesson plans but I haven't needed to as the plans feel like they've been written for my class. The overview pages in particular are fantastic and save lots of planning time. The children are completely engaged in the lesson and excited by their writing missions - even the children who struggle with writing are keen to participate. Big Writing Adventures is fantastic. You can just pick it up and go - it's very easy to follow and both boys and girls love it."
