Power of Reading 


Over the last term, Holtspur School has fostered the CLPE’s Power of Reading approach to teach all areas of the English curriculum. CLPE’s Power of Reading has been compiled with highly regarded classroom-based research and experience of working with teachers. To ensure that the teaching of the English curriculum is creative, engaging and inspiring. Power of Reading introduces children to a range of high-quality books and as a result, develops a child's love of reading and writing.

For more information about Power of Reading, please speak to your class teacher, the English Lead (Mrs Blackmore) or have a look at the website

We ask you to support this teaching approach by not sharing the class text with your children until after it has been shared in school. Please find below a list of books that you can share with your children to support and enhance their learning.


Here are just some of the wonderful texts we have covered so far:
