Reading

"There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book."     Frank Serefini

Pop-Up Libraries

As part of a commitment to promote reading Miss Adams introduced 'MISS ADAMS' POP UP LIBRARIES' . The aim is to engage and interest children of all ages to read and broaden the reading experiences of children who are already keen readers. We want to encourage children to choose to read and not just view reading as something they are made to do in order to answer questions.

These pop-up libraries can be found in all KS2 classes. Within each pop-up library basket are a selection of fiction and non-fiction books that Miss Adams will have personally read. Most pop-ups now have up to or over 30 books and Miss Adams is continually adding to these titles.

Each pop-up has a different selection of books carefully selected for that class, their age and reading interests. Once children have read a book from the pop-up they are asked to summarise it in 3 key words. Miss Adams ensures the children's views are taken into account when selecting books by talking to them about their reading and looking at reading diaries.
