Pathways to Read

Pathways to Read

The Literacy Company

Pathways to Read is a programme designed to equip pupils from Year 1 onwards with key skills to move them through the reading process towards becoming competent and fluent readers. To support this approach, clear detailed lesson plans and resources are linked to high-quality texts. Pathways to Read ensures engaging and purposeful reading lessons.


Pathways to Read follows a mastery approach to learning with three categories of skills developed each half term: ongoing skills (linked to text choices and achieved through selection of teaching activities); core skills (prediction, vocabulary development and retrieval) and mastery skills (2-3 objectives are focused on for pupils to master over the course of the half-term).
