About this BritLit Kit

This kit was made by a group of Portuguese teachers who attended one of the two week intensive training courses for materials writers at the Norwich Institute of Language and Education (NILE), funded by the EU Comenius fund. Their principle trainers were Claudia Ferradas and Susan Hillyard, and they worked with Tony Mitton during the course. This group also wrote the kit for Down by the Cool of the Pool. The poems are read by Tony Mitton and original artwork is by Rob Lenihan.



I like all of them and I started to use and my pupils like very much. thanx to this nice team.

Hi - I'd love to use the robin hood rap next week but I can't get the audio to play. Could someone check if it's working correctly? Many thanks

Hi there - I've uploaded the links to the audio again and it seems to be working fine now.
Hope your students enjoy the activity!
