Project X Alien Adventures: Teaching Handbook Year 1/P2 by Linda Tallent

Written by early years' expert Linda Tallent, this Teaching Handbook supports Project X Alien Adventures at Year 1/Primary 2. Inside you will find: - an easy-to-follow six-step approach to the series - advice for encouraging a love of independent reading in your classroom - best practice and top tips for developing independent readers - phonics progression charts - observation, planning and assessment charts - support for working with parents - a selection of photocopy masters to support follow-up work for every book in the year group.


Project X Alien Adventures provides an excellent addition to our reading provision. It is an outstanding resource because the children love the characters and they become completely absorbed in the story. The gadgets, creatures and strange worlds capture their imagination and interest. When children are so engaged, it makes their capacity to learn so much greater. Martin Fenton, Headteacher - Greenhill Primary School, Wakefield With the detailed inside cover notes - with steps for reading before, during and after the story - they help the Teaching Assistant with minimal support from the teacher. Also helps the parents with reading at home with their child. Miss Stephanie Cairns, Assistant Headteacher - Harrowgate Hill Primary School, Darlington The books and materials appeal to both boys and girls but they include content that particularly motivates boys to read which definitely supports the teacher in class. Alien Adventures engages children and we have seen them make sustained progress in their reading development. Stephanie James, Year 1 Teacher - Churwell Primary School, Leeds
