Synopsis

Birth and Death of a City Settlement Patterns by Elizabeth Raum

Fusion is a high-interest, non-fiction range that has been carefully designed to appeal to struggling pupils. Strong images encourage readers to engage with curriculum topics - and lively text with a low reading level (age 7) ensures that the concepts are clear and accessible to everyone. It contains fascinating content and carefully levelled text, which means that every child will find a book they want to read and can read. Each book delivers a curriculum requirement or key topic so struggling readers cover the same ground as their peers. It includes free teacher support notes.
