Stretching able readers at upper KS2

    Hi there,
    I'm looking for some inspiration! I'm a year 5/6 teacher who has just been handed the role of G&T co-ordinator in school. One of the main areas for development is with regards able readers. We have consistently seen over the last couple of years children achieving 5C/5B in reading by the middle of year 5. The problem we then face is that they tend to stagnate, meaning that on the tracking charts they don't make any further progress - or progress is minimal. What advice have people got for this? Perhaps secondary teachers have ideas? It's a key area for development this year and is forming part of a project I'm completing for a leadership programme so any advice will be much appreciated.
