At St Michael's school, reading is at the heart of all that we do. We have mindfully curated a bespoke sequence of texts that span from reception to year six, that children will listen to and read as part of our set curriculum.
We believe that it is important for children engage with books that have stories and characters that they can relate to and see themselves in. With that in mind, we have incorporated a range of texts and genres that explore different religions, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.
To ensure that our children experience a rich reading diet, each book/text has been selected to fit into one or more of our key categories: empathy, inclusive, culturally diverse, classics, modern classics, poetry, picture and Shakespeare.
