English 4-11 Magazine

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

English 4-11 is a member-exclusive magazine, 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. ‎

The editorial board welcomes submissions. Articles (between 1,000 and 3,000 words) can be submitted by sending the final draft of your article, preferably by email, to: engassoc@le.ac.uk or by post to:
