At St Michael in the Hamlet Primary school we want to develop a rich, reading culture. Our aim is for every child to discover a love of reading that will stay with them throughout their lives.
Each year group uses high quality texts as part of a diverse book spine, which enables the children to experience a multitude of genres.
Each class has an inviting reading area that the children can access at various times during the week.
We also want to encourage our children to read at home as much as possible. A mixture of listening to your child read and reading together will develop a wide vocabulary and promote a love of reading.
We are currently refurbishing our library in the Junior building. We are aiming to open it up to the school community in the Spring term.
Watch this space for our exciting new reading competition!
