Reading Spines

Polehampton 'Must Read' Books 

We have invested heavily in books for our children because it is so important that children love what they read - even when they're just starting to read sounds.  We have an extensive collection of books for children to read at home, using mostly Big Cat Collins and Read, Write, Inc, with supplementary parallel books.   

We also support children in developing a love of reading for pleasure.  For that reason, we have devised a 'Must Read' list for every year group.  The children will encounter these books in class:  some will be read to them, some will be worked on in groups, some will kick-start writing and some are read just for the joy of hearing a fabulous story.
