Reading at the Heart of our Curriculum

Reading is at the very heart of our school curriculum, with high quality texts at the core of our topics and long term planning.  We draw on high quality texts and core books from the Power of Reading, and our long term topics are hinged upon these. 


Please take a look at our long-term year group plans, to see how these texts enhance our curriculum as well as promoting a love of reading throughout all we do and across all our topics.
