We also have an extensive levelled reading scheme that draws together a wide range of reading materials. In addition to the general reading books there are also special books for reluctant readers, readers with disabilities as well as an extensive library for free readers (those children who have progressed beyond the scheme).
Class Novels – Long Term Overview (2021/2022)
This shows the coverage of English Literature across year groups. These novels are recommended and should be used as read aloud stories. They should also be used for guided and shared reading and in English lessons if possible. (If the novels don’t fit with the focus of English lessons, then they needn’t be used for this purpose!). We are trying to build a love of reading in our children and the use of great literature is key!
