Pathways to Read is a programme designed to equip pupils in year 1 with key skills to move them through the reading process towards becoming competent and fluent readers.

Year 1 Pathways to Read is designed to support with the teaching of the year 1 national curriculum reading comprehension objectives. It has been developed to run alongside the school’s chosen SSP (systematic synthetic phonics) programme for the spring and summer terms.

The year 1 units provide clear detailed lesson plans and resources linked to high-quality texts, ensuring engaging and purposeful reading sessions.

The programme follows a mastery approach to learning with three categories of skills developed each half-term: ongoing skills, core skills and mastery skills. Pupils will focus on 2-3 objectives over the course of each half-term.

Included in the package:

  • Methodology document to support implementation
  • Overview of year group skills and genre coverage for year 1
  • Detailed whole class reading plans
  • Fully resourced sessions including teaching PowerPoints
  • Year 1 assessment materials
  • Creative links to the wider curriculum when combined with Pathways to Write
