Bite into Writing is NFER’s new resource for year 6 teachers, designed to help you teach and assess writing with confidence.

Each Bite into Writing book is organised into lesson-sized chunks, and you can set your pupils activities that support both their reading and writing skills.

The comprehensive resource also includes exemplified samples of year 6 pupils’ writing that are clearly annotated to support your assessment judgements.

Bite into Writing helps to save you planning time, motivates your pupils to write for various audiences and purposes, and supports you with your assessment of writing.

At the heart of each Bite into Writing book is a high-quality published text, selected to inspire and motivate your pupils. Books 1-3 of Bite into Writing are available to order now for delivery ahead of the new academic year.

  • Book One – based on When We Were Warriors by Emma Carroll.
  • Book Two – based on Everest by Alexandra Stewart and Joe Todd-Stanton.
  • Book Three – based on Otters’ Moon by Susanna Bailey.

Specially selected by highly experienced moderators, each quality text is chosen based on the potential for discussion and inspiration, so your pupils can be supported with their creative writing.
