The structured way to deliver reading success...

  • Controlled vocabulary and structured progression that you know really works.
  • Fiction and non-fiction readers share the same vocabulary within a Stage.
  • Books are linked to popular themes, like food and the environment, so your children can practise high frequency words.
  • Comprehensive Teaching Guides contain essential planning information guaranteed to make preparation quicker and easier.
  • Developed by Dee Reid and Diana Bentley, authors of Rapid Reading and Rapid Writing, as well as the hugely-successful Catch Up programme.
