The Power of Reading

At Braintcroft we follow 'The Power of Reading' project. The project has been delivered nationally and internationally for over a decade. It explores the core components of developing a vibrant reading community and supports schools in transforming their reading culture.  Attached is a list of the books studied in each year group. Our children love reading together with their teacher to explore new novels at great depth.
