Our Reading Focus

This academic year we are looking at new ways of encouraging our children to love reading, read for pleasure and become lifelong readers. We have completely updated our school library, ensuring that there are a good range of quality fiction texts to excite our children, we are buying factual books to accompany the new topics that are part of our redesigned curriculum, each class has a comfortable inviting book corner, where children can relax and enjoy books together and we are developing our guided reading and whole class shared texts to fully engage all learners. We have also introduced the Book Detectives programme in our Key Stage 2 classrooms to help children develop greater understanding of what they read. Check out some of the pictures of what we've been doing below.
