Love of Reading
We have recently launched our new library with great success where children can read for pleasure and research purposes and enjoy a wide variety of stimulating material.
We are currently in the process of purchasing a ‘reading caravan’ which will be located on the playground and will be available to children during their free time. This will be a relaxing environment in which children can enjoy reading independently or sharing favourite books.
Reading ambassadors from key stage 2 enjoy reading aloud to children during lunchtimes from a selection of books chosen by our pupils. As well as reading and listening to stories for pleasure, this enables reading with fluency and expression to modelled to children by their peers. ‘Buddying’ of pupils across year groups also provides further opportunity for this.
