Welcome to our Library
Our library contains a wealth of fiction and non-fiction books to extend children's knowledge, promote research skills and stimulate their imaginations. It provides a quiet place for children to read and relax and plays a vital role in promoting a love of reading.
The will to read influences the skill and vice versa (OECD, 2002)
Reading for pleasure is the single most important indicator of a child’s future success (OECD, 2002)
We recognise the importance of reading for pleasure in realising our school vision and values to RAISE; supporting all our children to enjoy learning and achieving, feel good about themselves, and become positive members of the community.
Every class has an allocated library slot each week when they can come to the library and choose books that interest them, in addition to their reading books. Classes also have a lunchtime slot, run by our year 6 librarians, when they can choose to come and spend a bit more time browsing the bookshelves, reading their library books or flicking through copies of magazines and newspapers.
Children also have daily access to their class libraries, which work as an extension to our whole school library. These contain a range of fiction and non-fiction books, including books that extend their reading across the curriculum.
On Monday’s after school Mrs Holdroyd invites parents and children to come and loan books from all classes.
