The Power of Reading

At Copperfield Academy we follow a CLPE scheme called ‘The Power of Reading’ when teaching English.  Through this scheme we emphasise the importance of books andliterature in enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers and writers. It combines an introduction to outstanding books with an approach to teaching the English curriculum in a creative, engaging way that develops a love for English. The Power of Reading is project which is underpinned and based on our research and experience.
