Oakley Vale Primary school

Reading for pleasure books

We have created a collection of high-quality reading for pleasure
books for every year group at Oakley Vale.

They are displayed on book cases in every classroom to inspire children and help them choose books they are excited to read.

We have ensured that we:

  • are not displaying too many books at once
  • refresh the display frequently
  • make the books attractive and easy for children to find.

These books are high quality relevant texts selected from:

  • Book Trust 100 best books
  • National Literacy Trust recommendations
  • Pie Corbett Reading Spine
  • 50 Recommended Reads for each year group
  • Texts from the “5 Plagues” reading spine

The books chosen for each book case include:

  • Some favourites from previous years
  • Some more challenging texts
  • Some texts at lower reading age to ensure access for all children
  • A range of genres: Fiction, Non-Fiction, Traditional Tales and Poetry
