Examples of our Power of Reading Sequences

Our Power of Reading teaching sequences guide planning and help teachers to select the best teaching approaches to explore high quality texts in depth, enhancing reading comprehension and providing meaningful contexts and purposes for writing. Sequences are provided for every key stage from Nursery to Year 7.  The sequences include cross-curricular links so that you can really put quality literature at the heart of your curriculum.  They show you how you can embed the teaching of phonics, grammar, punctuation and spelling into a rich reading curriculum. There are currently over 200 teaching sequences on this site.
