Reading for Pleasure animated-reading-image-0417

We want to encourage all of our children to have a love of reading.

At playtimes and lunchtimes we have the following in place:

  • Children are encouraged to read in their spare time and may bring a book into the central hall at break times to read comfortably and quietly.
  • Our reading room is supervised at lunchtime, the children have access to the library and a range of fictional texts at this time.

Below you will find links to various sites that will give you some ideas of books to read.
