Come Read With Me

Come read with me


We really believe in promoting the pleasure of reading at our school.  Not only that, but promoting children’s cultural capital and understanding of the world they live in.


‘It is the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.’


 Because we really value the importance of the love of reading, we dedicate time every afternoon for children to listen to, and enjoy a range of books. Classes vote and carefully select the text they would like to hear, from classics to book prize winning texts. Children are introduced to a range of new language and ideas which stimulates and develops their imagination! This is our favourite time of day!


Our children have said:


“ I love when my teacher reads a new chapter of our book!”

“ I’m always excited to find out what happens next”


Reading is a huge part of our school day, we also have reading opportunities at lunchtime in our reading area of the playground- children manage this area and select the books that are available. There is a comfy space for children to immerse themselves in stories.
