Catapult has been developed to enable students who are below expected standards at age 11 to make the progress they need. Catapult provides students with the skills and knowledge to advance confidently in their English studies, while giving teachers the tools they need to track progression. This Teacher Companion includes holistic chapter- and lesson-specific support along with extensive planning and assessment support, enabling teachers to prepare and teach with confidence. Individual lesson support relates to the content of Student Book 1 and provides further guidance and links to other resources including Workbook 1 and Kerboodle: Lessons, Resources and Assessment 1. The Teacher Companion also contains answers for activities in Student Book 1 and Workbook 1.
