July’s #MashoftheMonth is Serial Mash
Serial Mash is your online library for reading and comprehension, with a new chapter every week of term, writing activities and guided reading resources, all the hard work is done for you. Serial Mash is designed to inspire children to develop a love of reading, become better readers, and provide resources to support busy teachers in the classroom. Through the publication of bespoke weekly fiction, Serial Mash leaves every chapter on a cliffhanger, encouraging children to keep returning to find out what happens next.
Home access is a key part of Serial Mash providing all children, regardless of background, with a growing library they can read for pleasure away from school. Everyone at Serial Mash is committed to helping children have a love of reading and develop the key life skill of reading. The resources accompanying each chapter help ensure the children develop the skills to become higher-level readers and save the teacher’s time in preparing them for themselves.
The video below highlights all the ways that Serial mash can support reading, writing and comprehension in Key Stages 1 and 2. Using the latest functionality and resources of Serial Mash in the classroom, this will help you to plan and create tasks to develop reading skills throughout the primary years.
