Lighthouse - Jolly Hungry Jack by Carrie Weston


Lighthouse - Jolly Hungry Jack by Carrie Weston

This collection of infant reading books works as the skills-focused backbone of guided reading resources, with step-by-step skills coverage and the full range of genre. The scheme correlates to the NLS and the Scottish 5-14 Attainment targets for children. The readers in this scheme feature a wide range of genres (including non-fiction) and are levelled to Book Bands , the grading system recommended by the NLS. Within each Lighthouse band the books are organized in order of challenge, so each session moves children on. Each reader has an accompanying teaching notes booklet which gives guidance on teaching a range of reading skills.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
