“Teachers need help to stop reinventing the wheel,” said company founder Dominic Traynor. “Our aim is to make it easy for teachers to focus on teaching by providing everything they need in one simple package.”

The project includes seven original stimulus and how to film videos along with daily whiteboard files, lesson plans and supporting resources.

Rob Smith of The Literacy Shed said: “Film allows all children to be involved in the creative process regardless of reading or writing ability. The combination of film and filmmaking is unique which make this such a fantastic resource.”

A Tale Unfolds has been working alongside teachers for the last three years to radically improve literacy teaching and learning. Catherine Miller of Carnagill Community Primary School said: “I can’t recommend A Tale Unfolds strongly enough! My class have made fabulous progress in writing and loved every minute.”
