Our school literature spine sets out the core books that children will be introduced to in each year group. As a school, we have developed the literature spine to provide:
High quality, authentic texts that engage children and ensure good progress.
Supporting texts that enrich the children’s reading experience.
A mix of modern and classic texts that reflect our literary heritage.
Tales from a range of cultures.
Traditional tales in every year group.
Texts that support a range of writing genres and make meaningful links to the wider curriculum.
A range of quality fiction, non-fiction, poetry and visual and film media.
The literature spine is reviewed and updated regularly to build on good practice and add any newly discovered books.
