Coreen Burt produced this cross curricular literacy theme for pupils in a referral unit who had absolutely no interst in school or learning whatsoever. Many of them were Romany or Irish gypsies who have a great love of horses. So I created this theme on horses to capture their attention and interest and they happily got on with the work not realising that they were doing their hated English. Job done! The theme includes creative writing, grammar, spellings, sentence construction, punctuation, literature (War Horse by Michael Morpugo) and many other topics including a bit of art.
