    When I say 'top set' I actually mean mostly Level 5s, so don't get carried away.
    I'd like to do a pre-1900 text as I think that kids get a terrible shock when they have to read complex vocabulary and sentence structure and l-o-n-g paragraphs at KS4 and was thinking Oscar Wilde or Conan Doyle short stories.

    Or maybe 'Treasure Island'?
  2. I had read everything of Rider Haggard;s by the time I was 10, but I suspect that king Solomon's Mines would be an entertaining story for year 7s. Allan Quatermain is not unlike Indiana Jones.
