Providing children with learning opportunities through high-quality non-fiction texts linked to wider curriculum learning has many benefits, including (but certainly not limited to):

  • Enabling children to read, write and communicate effectively in all areas of the curriculum, not just English lessons.
  • Increasing engagement and confidence in reading complex texts.
  • Preparing children for the demands of the KS3/KS4 curriculum, especially the shift from reading mainly fiction at primary school to reading mainly non-fiction at secondary.
