Brackenwood Reading Spine

As a school, we believe that there are many different types of texts that children should have access to in order to successfully navigate reading with confidence beyond their phonic understanding. These books are complex beyond a lexical level and demand more from the reader/listener than other types of books. We also believe in order to instil a love of reading in pupils, staff should have the opportunity to share some of their favourite childhood books with them. Once pupils become familiar with these more complex texts, we hope to see them using ideas from them in their own writing.
