What schools are saying

The children found the non-fiction texts both engaging and informative.

There was a wide range of activities and each one helped the children to make progress with their comprehension skills.

My class have loved engaging with the text and have blown us away with how well they are still recalling the information from the text.

I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching SfA's reading lessons as they have raised the expectations of staff, parents and pupils.

They have very quickly produced confident, fluent readers who engage well with a variety of texts.
