Wondered whether anyone had any recommendations for a 'read it yourself' type reading scheme for my (soon to be) age 6 DD that we could use at home.
We have loved the Oxford Reading tree with Biff & Chip but think we have read them so often that the words are memorised so some variety (for my sanity too!) would be helpful. They use the Sound Start scheme in school. thanks for any advice here.

We have the Usborne First Reading scheme. They are great. Slightly longer than ORT books but come with ribbon for marking your place grin

Lots of repetition and fun stories. Levels seem similar to ORT levels and I think there might be a guide online.

DS1 is on ORT level 4 and we have Usborne level 3.

Am just about to buy him some non-fiction ones too.

Thanks, I'll take a look.

I have those too. My dd1 is 'reading' Miss Mosses Bus and my dd2 A Midsummers Night Dream.

My five-year-old is addicted to the Magic Tree House series by Mary Pope Osborne.
