Series: Lower Key Stage 2

There are many fantastic series for pupils who are moving towards reading independently – these series feature familiar characters and a consistent narrative arc (adventure, mild peril, positive resolution) and are usually based around a theme that is appealing to young readers like fairies, animals and dinosaurs.

Publishers carefully ensure the vocabulary and structure are at the right level, and the formulaic plots actually help children practice their reading, engage with the series and characters, and makes them see themselves as readers - which all act as a launch pad to set a child up as a lifelong reader.
