The Family from One End Street by Eve Garnett – teaching guide

Cornerstones Love to Read teaching guide for The Family from One End of the Street*, packed with ideas for classroom activities that encourage children to talk about their reading.

The Family from One End of the Street is a working-class slice of life from the 1930s, humorously told in a simple, matter-of-fact style. Structured into episodes, the book focuses on character and social comment rather than plot. Suitable for a whole class read, although you may need to explain some cultural references, e.g. Woolworths and the Eleven Plus.
