Promoting a Love of Reading
Promoting a love of reading is one of the most important things we can do as a school. We try to do this in many ways,
Including the following:
As part of our Authors’ Programme, every class reads a book from a chosen author each half term.
Within the class a mini lending library is set up of books by the focus Author. This helps to widen the children’s range of reading with
modern, highly regarded and age-appropriate books.
Each class has their own lending library
We have a well stocked central library with a pupil operated computer check in/check out system.
A librarian is employed at lunch time to manage and promote the library.
We regularly run ‘Authors in School’ weeks when real authors are invited in to school to work alongside children
In their English lessons.
We celebrate International Book Day with many reading themed activities.
We work closely with the Willerby Library to promote their use including summer reading challenge.
