Rob Smith's 'The Literacy Shed'

Postby Debbie_Hepplewhite » Sun Feb 26, 2017 11:23 pm

Do visit Rob Smith's 'The Literacy Shed' to see what is available as video footage to stimulate thought, conversations and writing projects. Many film clips are free to access - and Rob provides CPD for those who would like to be further supported with ideas and inspiration (please note that Rob asks teachers to watch the films before showing them to ensure they are suitable for the children in their care):

Rob Smith is the curator of the Literacy Shed. He has been a Primary School Teacher for 10 years working in The Midlands and in Greater Manchester.

Rob was a class teacher, Literacy leader and member of a successful management team.

In 2012 Rob built the Literacy Shed on his dining room table, joined by some great collaborators such as Lee Parkinson and John Murray. Soon afterwards the website was attracting visitors in their thousands from all around the world....

About The Literacy Shed

Most of the resources can be used in KS1 and KS2 but some do lend themselves to the upper age group and above and therefore should be used with caution. The aim is to provide high quality resources that can be used in stand alone literacy lessons, can form the basis for a whole Literacy unit or can support literacy units that you already have in place. With the many book based activities I would advocate using the book alongside the digital resource.

This site is intended for use by teachers to use with the children in the class when they find the films relevant and suitable. Many of the films on the site are student short films so have not been classified by the BFi as U, PG, etc so teachers should watch films and use those that they deem appropriate for the children in their care.

We have added some classifications to the films such as KS1, KS2, KS2+ and KS3, these are guidelines only.
