A new Speechmark title this inspiring resource equips SENCOs, primary school teachers and speech and language therapists alike with simple, practical and effective tools to improve children’s speech, language and communication through the use of drama activities based on a range of classic and modern stories.

Key features include:

  • a huge range of activities so that the resource can be used in focused support for those with SGBPN or in mixed ability classrooms
  • topical links to the English programmes of study so that activities support core curriculum learning
  • distinct sections for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 make the book relevant from Reception to Year 6.
