Sherwood Reading Pathways

In Key Stage 2, when the children are ready for the next step on their reading journey, they select a book from our Reading Pathways. Please watch the short video below for an introduction to our pupil led reading pathways.

Each book in the Pathways, has been carefully selected to provide the children with a broad and engaging reading experience – we have chosen books from our literary heritage, well-loved authors and award-winning fiction. We consult carefully with our children and in 2022, introduced a number of new identity texts in our reading pathways.

There are four Pathways and three stages in each Pathway. When the children complete all 12 books in a Pathway, they receive a certificate to recognise their reading achievement. These have been a very popular addition to our reading journey. Please click here for a recommendation from one of our pupils!

In addition, each child is given the opportunity to take home a library book, and we have recently further enhanced our reading offer, with class sets of non-fiction texts to support learning across the curriculum.
