The Power of Reading is an English program designed to improve children's writing through immersion in high-quality real texts. We use this to support and supplement our English spine. During the course of a unit, children will study one particular text in great detail. They develop reading skills through a range of techniques and use their chosen text as a springboard into writing a variety of text types. For example, children in year 2 use a text called 'Hedgehog' as inspiration for work on persuasive posters and information texts. This work also links with animals and habitats in Science and colour, pattern and texture in Art. Spelling, punctuation and grammar skills are carefully planned in to match children's reading and writing in each unit.
