This Teacher Guide was created by Lizzie and the Birds author, Dawn Robertson, who works across England as a consultant helping pupils and teachers to deliver book-based learning. Initially, she produced a large bank of activities and resources, which were trialled in a variety of schools, with children of all ages. Teachers and pupils were then asked to give their opinions about which activities they thought were the most effective and challenging and should be included in this Teacher Guide. Dawn listened carefully to this feedback as was keen for the materials to be as comprehensive as possible, enabling everybody to use them effectively in the classroom.

    This book is the perfect text for teaching different genres of writing but keeping within the same theme.
