Reading Champion: The Flight of Icarus

Reading Champion: The Flight of Icarus

In this retelling of the famous Greek myth, we learn the story of Icarus and his father Daedalus, including why they were imprisoned after building of the Labyrinth for Minos’s son, the Minotaur, and the tragic outcome of their daring escape.

This story is part of Reading Champion, a series carefully linked to book bands to encourage independent reading skills, developed with Dr Sue Bodman and Glen Franklin of UCL Institute of Education (IOE).

This first colour chapter book is a perfectly levelled, accessible text for Key stage 2 readers aged 10-11. Reading Champion offers independent reading books for children to practise and reinforce their developing reading skills.

Fantastic, original stories are accompanied by engaging artwork and activities to provoke deeper response and encourage writing. Each book has been carefully graded so that it can be matched to a child’s reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure.
