Reading For Pleasure

At Emmaus, we believe that children deserve a rich curriculum which encourages extensive reading of whole books and other kinds of texts.  This active encouragement of reading for pleasure is a core part of every child’s educational entitlement, whatever their starting point because we know that extensive reading and exposure to a wide range of quality texts make a huge contribution to our pupils’ educational achievement.




Parents/carers/family members - you can play your part and encourage a love of reading at home. Listen to your child read regularly and also read to your child. The Book Trust have a lot of tips for reading with your child and incorporating books into your bedtime routine. Click the link below to find out more. 

Below are 50 recommended reads for each year group. Underneath there is also a link where to find out more about each story. 


We love to hear about the books you have read together at home. Once you have read the book, email the class teacher with a short book review and tell us why you recommend the story to others. We also love to see any photographs of you sharing stories as a family!
