It is our intention that over their learning journey at East Ravendale, children are read to, enjoy, discuss and work with a selection of core books. Children in EYFS centre their learning each week around a core text which can be seen within our writing long term plan. From Year 1 each year group are immersed in a wide range of text types and diverse themes. They are inspired by a range of authors and poets and exposed to a balance of new and classic literature, creating a living library inside the child’s minds which will help foster a love of reading. Books have been carefully chosen which create mirrors and windows that reflect the realities of the children in our classrooms and beyond. These books form our reading spine.
