Reading for pleasure


'There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.'

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Throughout our school, we aim to promote the love of reading at every age and at every point throughout the day - from Breakfast Club, during lessons, passing the time at lunch to having a quiet read in After School Club. We also hope that our children take their love of reading home. We feel so strongly about reading for pleasure that we applied for the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark - and are pleased to say that we achieved GOLD! Read the feedback we received in the report below.

The love of reading is promoted in many ways - through competitions, assemblies and visitors, Pupil Reading Champions in each class, Book Swaps and Book Fairs, Parent Storytimes and 'Book Stops' throughout school. We have also recently begun to use 'MyBookBlog' @RuthMiskin to encourage children to share ideas about characters and share opinions with other readers.
