Reading for pleasure
At Ascot Heath we want our pupils to have an enthusiasm to read and a life-long love of listening to a whole variety of stories old and new and a wide range of non-fiction. Therefore we timetable 'Reading for Pleasure' sessions. During these sessions pupils choose a book to read and enjoy by themselves, with a partner or in a group. During these sessions children find comfy places to enjoy their book and are encouraged to discuss, laugh, chat and recommend books to each other. In these sessions their teachers will suggest books that pupils might enjoy as well as sharing stories too.
Below are some images of our year 6 and year 3 reading buddies enjoying a reading for pleasure session!
Our reading corners are engaging and inviting for the children with clues and suggestions about the texts either from the teachers or the children. Our junior librarians are responsible in keeping our reading corners tidy as well as organised.er text...
