Steps to Read is planning support for whole class shared reading through carefully crafted units of work. These units of work also help schools to provide curriculum knowledge for foundations subjects. The program empowers educators to teach all aspects of word reading and comprehension through high-quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts. Steps to Read provides a clear teaching sequence to reading sessions that explicitly teach reading skills and strategies in a cumulative way through evidence-based approaches. These comprehensive units have been constructed so that the entire statutory curriculum for reading is covered from EYFS to Y6.
