Reading for Pleasure
Reading is not simply a cognitive process; it is an emotional response.
For children to fall in love with books, we must show them that we love books.
If we want children to talk enthusiastically about books, we too must talk enthusiastically about books.
This is the role and the responsibility of the adult reader.
It is with this in mind that we have chosen that will support our pupils as they journey towards becoming a real reader, someone who loves to read and does so independently, not because they have been told to but simply because they enjoy it.
This is the reward of all readers.
Below are Reading for Pleasure books that appropriate for year group to accompany some of our favourite books within school.
This selection is designed to encourage readers to talk about what they are reading and develop a love for the art of storytelling.
