Magic Tree House Key Stage 2 (Books 5 - 8)
Jack and his younger sister, Annie, are just normal kids. But when they discover a tree house in the woods near their home, something magical happens. Join Jack and Annie as they travel time and space in the Magic Tree House.
This key stage 2 English literature course uses books 5-8 of the ‘Magic Tree House’ series of adventure stories to teach English.
As well as covering the standard UK English language curriculum, these classes also include STEM teaching (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths), making the course even more interesting to kids!
Each book is quite short, and students will need to read 2 chapters for each class. This is a great curriculum for kids who enjoy reading, or need to improve their reading. As well as reading, students have writing and comprehension exercises, whilst also learning about topics such as history and geography.

On this course we cover reading skills and strategies, as well as the national curriculum KS2 syllabus of grammar, spelling, punctuation and vocabulary. Each class includes preparation and optional homework materials.

Note the UK version of the books has a different title to the US version. Either version is fine to use for the course.
