The Joy of Reading

We are passionate about children learning to love reading! Our beautiful library installed in 2016 thanks to the incredible hard work of FOFS gives our children at Fishbourne a great platform from which to dive into reading!

There are lots of contemporary texts and interesting authors for the children to discover. We are a school community with a big heart for reading! 

If you have a spare moment, do read this powerful reminder from Cressida Cowell about the importance of creating a JOY around reading:

Following a pilot with the Meerkat class last summer, we have exciting plans for Easter 2019 when we will be launching whole class texts throughout school, very generously supported by FOFS and Humberts. These books will be gifts to the children, enabling us always to choose the very best title for the cohort, using our knowledge of the children and their interests as a part of our decision making process! 

The teaching team in school have been set a holiday challenge to uncover a fabulous book for their class to enjoy devouring together and during the spring term, we will be professionally developing our team, in preparation for using these whole class texts to inspire a real love of reading, and writing!
