The Love of Reading

EXCITING NEWS: New reading bookshelves coming January 2024!


All children who have completed our Phonics programme will now have access to a bookshelf for their year group.  Each bookshelf contains a wide selection of books, covering fiction and non-fiction.  These are age-appropriate and have been chosen to offer children the chance to select from easy readers, whole series of books and more challenging reads. The children will be taught how to select appropriate books for their reading level and will be encouraged to read a range of books.  We are going to continually monitor and update the books on offer on our new bookshelves.  The children's engagement with reading and care with their books will dictate the investment for each year group - so make sure you bring your reading diary in every day and keep your bookshelf neat and tidy.  Happy Reading!

By moving around the and school loosing lots of their stuff,
Don’t be fooled by their double,
