Year 3: Reading non-fiction

Learning Outcomes

Being able to make independent choices about what type of text will help us achieve a goal and being able to use a range of strategies to access texts efficiently is the sign of a purposeful reader. This chapter will look at the move from learning to read to reading to learn by enabling children to apply their understanding of how to access non-fiction for information.

This chapter will allow you to achieve the following outcomes:

  • know the different roles of a successful reader;
  • understand the implications of each role and how it can act as a barrier to or enabler of reading;
  • develop an awareness of how non-fiction can inspire and motivate reading.
