Reading Lighthouse


Reading Lighthouse is a whole class reading discussion based on a text aimed in content, language, and length for each specific year group. The goal is for this to be implemented each day at the end of the day for 15-20 minutes. Within a year group, texts are to be related to ensure children are accessing the same texts throughout the academic year. 

Below you can see a sample of the books that children get to explore during our Reading Lighthouse Sessions. Please note that these are updated regularly and they may differ as new books are released.
