Our Enjoy Guided Reading range has become a go-to resource for busy teachers. To launch the new term we’d love for you to try one in the classroom for free. We’re sure once you’ve done so, you’ll be keen to come back for more. Our aim is always to give teachers the best tools for the job, saving time and delivering lessons that provide positive learning outcomes.   

We have one FREE resource for each year group from 1–6 available, so please share this with your colleagues and teacher friends.  Every school can download all six free resources with no catches.

Our best-selling Enjoy Guided Reading Teacher Books support a wide range of abilities with differentiated learning and extension activities to meet each pupil’s needs. Each one could cover a half term of work using the carousel method and are well-written and clear to follow so they can be used by teachers, teaching assistants and even pupils themselves.

Example content for Year 4

  • Brief information on the author and a book summary
  • A chapter synopsis
  • Teacher-led session: introducing the novel and questions linked to the opening
  • Questions for independent/supported work
  • Answers and objectives for independent/supported work
  • Follow-up activities: suggestions for reading, writing and cross-curricular tasks linked to the novel

Reading enjoyable, well-crafted books from exceptional authors within carefully planned guided reading sessions is invaluable in the development of children’s love of reading for pleasure and also the acquisition and improvement of reading skills. 

Our full range includes teacher books, complete packs (a set of pupil books, a teacher book and a CD) and individual digital downloads.
