* PUBLISHER Stanley Thornes is launching a new programme next month with Primary Literacy for Scotland, which it claims is "the only programme written from scratch, in line with all the current requirements of the 5-14 guidelines".

The programme provides materials at the 5 to 14 levels to monitor and raise standards of achievement, differentiated materials for whole-class and group teaching, and a lesson plan for every day for listening, talking, reading and writing.

The teachers' books for each level will appear first, with 180 lesson plans in each (cost Pounds 50). The whole scheme includes 157 readers for five to seven- year-olds which are already available, and anthologies for older classes. A second programme, Primary Maths for Scotland will follow next year.

Further details from Stanley Thornes, Ellenborough House, Wellington Street, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire GL50 1YW, tel: 01242 267280.

* OCTOBER 5-9 is National Schools Film Week throughout the UK, with events taking place in 166 cinemas around the country, including free previews, workshops and film industry events. Every pupil and student will also be able to take part in film-related initiatives supported by teaching materials from Film Education. Free posters and teaching packs are being sent to schools this month.

Further details can be obtained from National Schools Film Week, Film Education, Alhambra House, 27-31 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0AU, or tel Mandy White on 0171 976 2291.
