Cambridge Reading Adventures on the road to success

Cambridge Reading Adventures, the Press’s first Primary guided reading scheme launched in January this year. It was developed in conjunction with UCL Institute of Education, the leading authority in Primary reading, and uses their highly successful book band framework.

Since its launch seven months ago, the scheme has already seen enormous success. It has been shortlisted for the Education Partnership of the Year Grand-Prix award at this year’s Education Investor Awards, with winners to be announced in November, and secured a major ministry adoption in the United Arab Emirates which has seen the series placed in the libraries of Primary schools throughout the UAE.

Fahed Al Hussaini, Regional Director for MENA said, “Once we presented the unique features of our reading scheme to the Head of Libraries at the ministry, he immediately approved CRA since the series stands unique in its approach, particularly the grading system, teacher support as well as parents’ support.”

Cambridge Reading Adventures has been designed with international readers in mind.  Diverse and engaging fiction and non-fiction titles are set around the world, making it instantly relatable for learners and teachers alike. Traditional and animal tales sit alongside contemporary and historic settings, non-fiction reports and explanations giving the series a diversity which appeals to children whatever their interests.

The series is mapped to the International Primary Curriculum, Cambridge Primary, the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and Young Learners of English frameworks and can be used to support a range of local curricula. It comprises 90 titles levelled into 11 book bands, taking children from being wholly new readers in Pink A and B band to confident and independent readers at White and Gold band level.
