Many schools are looking for projects that support their work to build, strengthen and articulate their culture. A book is a tangible, inclusive project that has been used from KS1 to KS5.
A year group book is a good way to provide cohesion and a sense of shared ambition, particularly across large year groups.

A book is good project work and can be as much or as little work as you like. On a personal note, my son and I did this year's Christmas present as a solo Make Our Book, and it has also provided the focus as a home education group project.
The Literacy Hubs help communities across Portsmouth gain the literacy skills they need to thrive. They did a lovely pirate-themed book of short stories. And Leicester Council's looked after children published an anthology that made the ITV news!
