Striving to be the best that we can be

Reading For Pleasure

At Grange Park Junior School, we have developed an ethos where children see reading for pleasure as a normal part of school life, this has been paramount in helping our children develop a love for reading.  We believe that having access to a range of books in engaging and vibrant reading areas creates an environment where children want to read.


In support of this we have created a new library, with a Hogwarts themed reading area and literacy inspired wall art.  The library is well stocked with an abundance of books covering all genres and areas of interest.  It also has a range of fiction and non fiction reading sacks that have been specially created with KS2 children in mind and a well stocked selection of audio books that children can listen to and enjoy together. 

Alongside our library we have four themed reading areas:

  • The Secret Garden - Where children can lose themselves in the wonder of the classics
  • The Rainforest Hut - All the books in here are nature and animal based
  • The Rib Tickling Room - In this room you will find laugh out loud books from the likes of David Walliams, Roald Dahl and Jeff Kinney - a very popular room with our children!
  • All Aboard - Our reading boat where children can access a variety of books and fairytale themed reading sacks.

Each of our classrooms also have inviting reading areas that are well stocked with a full range of books, ensuring that our children are never more than a few steps away from delving into imaginary worlds and exciting adventures.
