Our Core Texts

"Engaging pupils in literature gives them access to all the things we can learn from great books and stories." ~ The Reading Framework, July 2023

Our core text selection allows our pupils to read, listen and talk about contemporary and classic writing by a broad and diverse range of authors. Our texts have been carefully selected using the work by Doug Lemov and others, so that our children encounter characters, situations and viewpoints that mirror their own lives, but also gives them a window into the lives of others too.
