The Book Led Curriculum

The following books must be covered in each year group as part of our book-led curriculum.  Teachers are free to select the other three books for the book-led themes in their class according to their own and the children’s interests and needs.  Teaching should be planned around the books and their themes incorporating cross-curricular links and also referring to the Pie Corbett Imitate, Innovate, Invent cycle.
