Reading for Pleasure

We believe that it is important to encourage everyone to develop a 'Life-long Love of Reading'.

Children will have opportunities throughout the week to 'read for pleasure', so they can bring in books from home or borrow them from the library. Below are a list of Recommended Reads for each year groupThe books have been carefully selected to offer challenge, to experience other cultures and traditions and to provide deeper thinking to our children in terms of topical issues. Why not challenge your child to read them all over the year? They might even find their new favourite author or discover their all-time favourite book!
