Literacy Resources for KS1 & KS2

Primary Texts for Primary Teachers

Primary Texts contains a range of high-quality, no-prep,  free and paid English resources which are suitable for primary pupils. High quality literature is often at the heart of excellent English teaching. With this in mind, Primary Texts also contains a Primary Book Lists section with suggested titles for specific year groups. The aim of these lists is to help teachers and parents choose highly-rated age appropriate reading books for either classroom use or independent reading.
