Reading Statement 2022

KS2 and KS3 Reading Lists and Supporting Your Child with Reading at Home

The ability to read is necessary to ensure success and to make connections in all other curriculum areas, and is a vital tool in our quest to know about and investigate the world around us. We encourage students to visit our school library to explore new books and renew their library loans to ensure they are constantly reading books which interest them and foster a love of reading.

The links below and the attached PDF provide reading lists for KS2 and KS3 pupils and we hope that this will help parents choose books (many of which are available in our school library) with their children which are engaging and enjoyable to read at home together. We would encourage parents to sit and listen to their children read for 10 minutes every day. A guide to this is also attached.

Book Buzz Books are back

In September we received a box of Book Buzz books provided by Book Trust and funded by the school.
The Year 7 students spent some time during one of their English lessons reading the book blurbs, first chapters, and listening to authors talk about their books before choosing their book.
This year's selection can be found here:
All students across the school may borrow these so everyone has access to the whole fantastic selection of brand new books we receive every September.
