​What is the LGfL newsfeed?

Latest News Article: Frederick Forsyth joins LGfL for Reading Zone Live

Frederick Forsyth on ReadingZone Live

LGfL is proud to announce that bestselling thriller author Frederick Forsyth has taken his place on the ReadingZone Live bookcase, after being interviewed exclusively for London schoolchildren looking to improve their writing and storytelling skills.

Mr Forsyth was initially taking part in filming for the upcoming Cold War resource from LGfL, as his many years of journalism saw him based behind the Iron Curtain in East Berlin. As he is today better known for his spy novels, he agreed to join the many other famous authors to have given insights into their writing for the benefit of improving literacy in schools.

Frederick Forsyth books generally appeal to more adult audiences, but the interviews offer an insight into the process of a master storyteller. Some teachers may find that there is value in the resource at upper-Primary levels, for example for G&T KS2 readers. However, the resource is expected to be mainly used in Secondary schools, and can be used as a great transition tool to move students from younger reading onto more challenging reads.​
