Reading is one of the most important aspects of a child’s education and we would therefore like to share with you what reading at William Shrewsbury looks like. We have spent a lot of time (and money) over the last year developing many aspects of the reading curriculum and to ensure reading for pleasure becomes an essential part of this.
In our exciting book corners, each class has access to our Year 2 recommended reads list. This is a list of 50 books that children will be encouraged to aim to read throughout the year. This list also includes the books that the children will read and study in class (you can spot these by the stars). In KS1, the children will be working on a whole class challenge to tick off the books and read them together during story times. Parents can also purchase these books for home and most are available on Amazon. We’ve therefore attached the list for your child’s year group so that you can also have access to the books that are recommended for your child.
