Reading is a skill we take for granted, yet one that is essential for being able to get on in life. As a child grows up, being able to read well not only enables them to discover new facts but also opens them up to a world of new ideas, stories and opportunities.
Reading is our key focus for this term. We are passionate about books and want to instil a love of reading in all our pupils, in order to achieve this, we need to inspire and excite them with wonderful new books.
Unfortunately, we do not have the finance needed to update our classroom reading provision and develop our reading corners, due to diminishing budgets.
Can you help us raise funds to purchase a collection of Fiction books for each classroom? Books that the children can use for free reading and home reading. We would love to create an inviting, cosy reading area in each and every classroom from Pre-School to Year 6.
Our aim is to raise £1000. It is a lot of money but with your help we can achieve our goal. This money will help us to buy books that we currently do not have in classrooms, but also keep a reserve to buy new titles that are released as the year goes on, ensuring the children always have something new and exciting to read. We will also use some of the money to buy lovely soft furnishing so the pupils can feel comfortable and happy!
