As a school, our aim is for children to develop a love of books and enjoy reading for pleasure. We have therefore implemented a number of new strategies, one being ‘Reading Buddies’. Each week a different year group from KS2 will visit our reception children to read a variety of books to them on a one-to-one basis. This week it was year 6s turn to read to them and an enjoyable time was had by all.
Next steps in Reading
As part of our ongoing drive to encourage reading for pleasure, our School Council are working with Mrs Brown and Miss Robertson to install a reading Yurt linking to our Forest School WOW area. This is such an exciting project that we are hoping to have completed by the middle of the spring term!
