My name is Steph Caswell and I am former Deputy Head, SENCO and Y6 teacher. I am also an author of books for teachers, as well as a blog and a podcast for NQTs. I love children's literature and my shop has a growing selection of reading resources for you to use for Guided Reading or comprehension activities. I am lucky to have the permission of Love Reading 4 Kids to use their extracts for many of these activities.
