This is a delightful play for either performance or shared reading, with plenty of potential for cross-curricular activity. The play features five Letterland characters on an adventure, plus a narrator (a teacher or more advanced pupil) and a Chorus Leader. The rhyme and rhythm help to develop reading skills, and the choral reading in unison encourages the audience to join in the fun. Size is 210 x 170mm of 24 pages of each (6 copies).
Lyn Wendon is a reading specialist who devised Letterland as a remedy for reading failure. Working among children with learning difficulties, she found that they needed a style of teaching that not only explained letter behaviour, but also fired their imaginations. The result was Letterland!
