Reading Champion: The Great Outdoors

Reading Champion: The Great Outdoors

This story is part of Reading Champion, a series carefully linked to book bands to encourage independent reading skills, developed with Dr Sue Bodman and Glen Franklin of UCL Institute of Education (IOE)

Red’s class is off on a wilderness adventure! Three whole nights away. Everyone is so excited, but will the class bully, Jack, ruin it for them all? Or can Red and the others show Jack that working together and showing kindness is the best way to survive and have fun in the great outdoors?

Reading Champion offers independent reading books for children to practise and reinforce their developing reading skills.

Fantastic, original stories are accompanied by engaging artwork and a reading activity. Each book has been carefully graded so that it can be matched to a child’s reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure.
