Todd, Tessa Tyler – National Literacy Trust, 2021
Primary school libraries are a vital part of the education system.

Clark, Christina; Picton, Irene; Riad, Lara; Teravainen-Goff, Anne – National Literacy Trust, 2021

We included…

Listening to children's experiences of writing during the first lockdown in spring 2020, it became clear that for many it had been a time of increased creativity, with children writing everything from songs and stories to scripts, and some even beginning their own novels.
