Learning to be the best that we can be with the love of God

Power of Reading Resources


The Power of Reading is something that has been developed by the CLPE (Centre forLiteracy in Primary Education). They provide teachers with a list of high quality texts and material to read along with lesson plans and suggested ideas to help children develop their love of reading.

We regularly use the CLPE to find books that the children will love to read and engage with and write about. As part of their home learning offer they have produced a resource called 'Take 5'.

The resources focus on 5 key principles outlined below;

The resources are a guide to the text and are designed to really engage the children in meaningul texts that are pitched at the age appropriate level.

The documents are available below to download, each stage across school has 2 'Take 5' booklets which can be downloaded and used accordingly. Each document has an extract from the books for the children to read which will enable them to move onto the activities.
