Literacy Shed

The Literacy Shed aims to provide teachers with high quality films and animations that can be used in the primary classroom to enhance the teaching of reading and writing. All of the films on the site we think are suitable for primary aged children although some films may not be suitable for younger children.  We urge that parents watch any films before showing them to children. The films and animations have literacy activities attached.
