We Care to Challenge

Reading Time

Reading for pleasure is a life-enhancing habit which also helps students improve their literacy skills.  We encourage students to select books they’ll enjoy, but which also offer an appropriate level of challenge.  Regular English lessons in the school library throughout Key Stage 3 ensure students choose from the excellent range of fiction and non-fiction available, with support from our library staff. Students keep a log of their reading and respond to tasks which ensure they’re engaging with the books they’ve chosen.  Students also read during morning registration at least once a week and are expected to carry a book with them throughout the week.  In addition, each Tutor Group is offered a registration session in the library on a regular basis to encourage students to choose new books.
