English 4-11

The magazine has a reader-friendly approach, backed by sound pedagogy, to inspire teachers to try out new ideas to develop their own practice.

English 4-11 is published jointly by The English Association and UKLA. The magazine covers Early Years through to Year 6 and secondary, with accounts of innovative practice, reports of classroom research, interviews with authors and articles to spark discussion. Each issue includes reviews of books and other resources for teachers and children. Published in Autumn, Spring and Summer, every year English 4-11 holds the English 4-11 Picture Book Awards for the best illustrated children’s books of the year in four categories: Fiction and Non-Fiction for ages 4-7 and 7-11 years. The prizes are awarded at the English Association’s Annual General Meeting each May, and the winning and short-listed books are featured in a full-colour insert in the summer issue of the journal.
