We recognise that every school will have different priorities, both in terms of the curriculum topics being studied, and varying needs for reflecting pupils' lives and engaging them with the world beyond their local community.
Whether supporting a curriculum topic, or designed as a leisure read, non-fiction texts are always a great way to engage and motivate children who may not yet have found their love of reading - useful both for allowing pupils to explore their existing interests, and encouraging them to develop new ones.
- Exposes pupils to new words, helping them develop a broad and rich vocabulary
- Develops the critical thinking skills essential to recognising ‘fake news’
- Helps children to navigate the diverse world we live in and the issues they may encounter as they prepare for the transition to secondary school.
Our team have put together some non-fiction recommendations for topics often covered during the autumn term, highlighting some of the outstanding books currently available, and you can view these below.
