Suitable for children in Year 1 (age 5), Going Fishing is from the Cambridge Reading genre strand Narrative Recounts, a strand which motivates children to explore their personal responses and make links to their own experiences. Each story in this set of nine is a true and significant event from someone's childhood. While some of the stories are set in modern Britain, others take place in the 1930s or 1940s in locations as diverse as Hong Kong and Trinidad. Going Fishing, retold by Juliet Partridge, tells the story of the Hazell family who spent a holiday on the Isle of Wight in 1994. They stayed near the beach and Lloyd, aged 6, was very excited to go fishing for the first time in his life. Narrative recounts also provide excellent models for children's own writing. This pack of 6 is for guided group reading.
