Reading Recommendations

Pie Corbett is an established authority on children's literacy and has developed book-centric approaches to teaching such as talk4writing. He champions the approach that at the heart of every reading and writing curriculum is a core of high quality texts / books that children should experience. Here is his suggested reading spine which we take suggestions from in school. 


We are currently developing our own personalised reading spine here at Sherston where we can celebrate high quality texts at the core of our English teaching. 

These are suggested reading ideas for each year group to read or share at home. They are by no means a prescriptive list and are ideas to support reading for pleasure at home.
