Hi – I’m Karen Moncrieffe. Welcome to Primary Texts. I am the owner of this website and creator of the content. I am a primary school teacher with more than 20 years experience, a tutor and an educational writer. I enjoy creating and sharing literacy resources to support the teaching of English in Key Stage 1 and 2.

At Primary Texts you’ll find resources which are:

  • High-quality written by an established educational author. My first book was published in 2009. Since then, I have worked with a variety of publishers creating resources to support the teaching of literacy. See the Books page for more details about my publications.
  • Easy prep and paperfriendly. Most premium resources are PPT lessons and the use of paper is kept to a minimum. Some PPT lessons do not require any worksheets at all. Not only does this help the environment, it also saves money and time. Plus, it encourages students to think more creatively and learn to structure their work.
  • Accessible to all. The PPT lessons are suitable for a wide range of abilities. The majority contain high-quality questioning to make students think and many opportunities for discussion. Plus, on the site you will find a wide range of materials to support students who are EAL and SEN.
  • Adaptable. All schools are different and only you know the needs of your class. Or maybe you’re a home educator? Perhaps you’d like to tweak the lesson content? One size does not fit all! Most resources are editable and can be adapted to suit your needs.
  • Curriculum linked. Resources are linked to objectives from the National Curriculum for English, but judging from the amount of downloads from countries around the world, the resources also meet the needs of the curriculums of other countries too! If you would like to find resources linked to the USA curriculum visit Primary Texts at TPT.
  • Inexpensive with lots free. In the free section of this website you will find a wide variety of resources to support the teaching of English. If you are interested in our premium resources, you don’t have to subscribe to access them. These can be bought individually on TES or TPT – or you can save money by purchasing one of our great value bundles!

I hope you find something on site that is useful to you. Thanks for stopping by!
