Cross-curricular Literacy Challenges is a series of six books specifically targeted at developing cross, curricular work from levels 6 across the 5 age range. Each book contains challenges with differentiated ability choices.
Each challenge encourages the development of time management skills, thinking skills and independent research, which culminates in a specific end product such as a written report, a prepared presentation, a radio programme, or a short film or that helps show the literacy and cross-curricular learning that has taken place.
