Got Money For Books!


Recommended Posts

As literacy Co-ord, have been told I can get new guided reading books. Whoo hooo!


Currently use Rigby Star which are ok but have no non-fiction. Does anyone know of a good scheme which has interesting, decodable, non-fiction books for Reception readers (especially boys) Looked at Collins Big Cats but couldn't navigate round the site. was confused (doesn't take a lot to confuse me!) Anyway your advice would be much appreciated! thanking you in anticipation (God, look at the time!!!!!!!!!)
