Reading for Pleasure

At this time, reading for pleasure should be the focus with your children. It will create a world full of wonder while developing and widening their vocabulary.

We have tried hard to embed this ethos so our staff will read a picture book each night which will be published at 3pm and a chapter book which will be published at 3.30pm. The videos can be found on our YouTube Channel. If you click playlist the videos are dived into subjects to make it easier to view.
