St Gregory's Catholic Primary School

Power of Reading

Here at St Gregory's we use The Power of Reading throughout EYFS, KS1 and KS2.


The Power of Reading approach has raised achievement in over 2500 schools across England and internationally. We have seen The Power of Reading transform the way the teachers teach and the way children feel about reading and writing. Children engage with high quality picture books, novels, poetry and non-fiction through a wide range of teaching approaches. Children are immersed into the text through music, art, drama, discussion and role-play. Other approaches include responding to illustrations, ‘Book Talk’, storymapping and book making.


Children take ownership of the text and engage with it deeply.

The carefully chosen texts are all part of Centre for Literacy in Primary Education’s (CLPE) Core Book List.
