Core Stories



 

At Canon Popham, we believe that READING for PLEASURE is very important. Everyone in our school enjoys hearing stories every day in their reading sessions.

Each year group has a set of CORE STORIES that they will hear throughout the year.                                     They also have a key author that they will focus upon.

By the end of year 6, each class will have read over 80 books, just for FUN                                                             At Canon Popham, we love to READ!

Here is a list of the stories for each year group:
