If you choose to create multiple editions:

  • You can choose to keep editions the same or tailor each to your exact needs.
  • You have complete control over the design.
  • Different covers, internal pages, binding, and lamination for each.

Many schools choose to create a different planner edition for each year group. By doing so, you allow the planner content to differ for each year group, making each year groups’ edition specific to them.

Can planners be used as reading records?

Yes, your planners can be used as reading records and diaries. The reading record pages we have in our planner library are all customisable. They can be adapted to reflect how your school prefers to deliver and support literacy at Key Stages 1 and 2. You can include additional pages on a particular aspect of reading; phonics for example.

Reading records and diaries underline the importance of allowing pupils to choose their own materials. In addition to those on the reading curriculum as well. This allows them to develop an enjoyment of reading. Identifying areas of progression for teachers if a child has a persisting pattern in their chosen reading materials.
