PM Reading

PM is the largest and most finely levelled reading programme in the UK, with a pedagogically sound, proven approach to making every child a successful, balanced reader. The PM collection contains over 1000 carefully levelled fiction and non-fiction texts, organised by series strand and colour band. It is ideal for shared, guided and independent reading and can be easily implemented across the whole school or class, or simply used to top up reading resources.

The scheme is supplemented by ‘PM Writing’, which is a teaching and assessment package for writing through the primary phrase and ‘Fast Forward’, which is designed to support older, struggling readers. Together, these programmes give teachers the reassurance that every child can progress – gradually and confidently – with reading and writing.
