Reading for Pleasure
We use the reading spine books in every year group over the school year. From your child moving into Nursery, to leaving in Year 6, they will have been immersed into 54 of the most fantastic books available to children!
Our amazing books!
At Whoberley Hall, we recognise that reading for pleasure at school is a vital part of the jigsaw when enabling children to learn to have a life-long love for reading. We enjoy sharing our love of reading in school by engaging in events and initiatives. We love to celebrate World Book Day each year, every class shares their favourite 'reads' on their classroom door and in our entrance area are a beautiful suitcase of great books for visitors to enjoy while they wait. Also, in every class, every day, from Nursery to Year 6, we have a dedicated time where we relax and enjoy a class story from our fantastic book spine (pictured above).
Each class from Year 1 to Year 6 also has a specific session on their weekly timetable where children are given a chance to talk about books, share recommendations and read for pleasure; whether this be magazines, e-books, fiction and non-fiction. It is important to us that children can take the time to choose and share books of their choice.
