Badger Learning offers a range of non-fiction books for Key Stage 2 readers. Brainwaves are a popular series of non-fiction titles designed to be ‘attention-grabbing’. Perfect for reluctant readers (Blue Level) but also to bring fun to reading for purpose and information. The layout and text of every Brainwaves book support students’ understanding of non-fiction. Key features include: 

  • Table of contents, index and glossary
  • A variety of text types, graphics and charts
  • High-interest content
  • Jokes and cartoons to add humour
  • Illustration and photographs on every page
  • Labelled diagrams, graphs, table and maps

The Brainwaves Teaching Guide provides the background knowledge you'll need to teach a wide range of strategies for reading non-fiction books. Lesson plans are provided for each book in the series devoted to reading and comprehension. Extension ideas which include opportunities for writing are also given.

The best-selling Enjoy Guided Reading Non-Fiction Book Banded packs for reluctant readers in KS2 are banded from Turquoise through to ‘Beyond Lime’ and have been produced in partnership with leading literacy expert and consultant, Dee Reid. Dee specialises in supporting reluctant readers particularly. These books (from our popular Wow! Facts range) have been written especially for pupils who have a lower reading age than their chronological age yet they are still packed full of interesting facts and engaging photographs. Teacher Books take you through one lesson per book and two follow-on activities are laid out for children to work on independently following an introduction.
