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.
