Our staff have developed a curriculum based on key texts to encourage a love of reading and to enhance vocabulary. Take a look at our Reading Maps for each year group which show which texts have been chosen to enhance our topics, Literacy curriculum and Guided Novel Study sessions.

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

A key element of our curriculum is children having the opportunity to select and vote on texts to read as a class. There are many opportunities for children to share their interests, author choices and favourite books and to recommend their reading passions to other class members.

Alongside this, we have developed staff recommended reads – texts that we feel your children should have experience of, learn by heart, act out or just enjoy. We have all of these books in school for the children to borrow. As we discover new authors, or the children recommend books to us, we will add these to our monthly recommended read newsletter.
