At Fishbourne CE Primary School we love to read! Everywhere we go, there are super books surrounding us – in classrooms, welcome areas, the library and Mrs Day’s office. There’s a book for every occasion and we love to celebrate our reading. We are very lucky to have an amazing library space in school which the children have designed themselves. It’s bright, colourful and jam packed full of great titles. Teachers at Fishbourne are readers too and there is always a lot of discussion about books, sharing titles we’ve enjoyed reading and encouraging each other to read.
Sometimes it’s good to challenge yourself with a new book, something you haven’t read before and we’ve put together a collection of websites that we think have some great suggestions.
Love Reading 4 Kids is a great website to peruse good books as it gives recommendations by age group as well as reviews and even some extracts to get a taste of the book before buying it. We highly recommend this site because there is such a lot to explore. One of our favourite parts is the ‘If they like… they’ll love’ where you can find suggestions about books you may enjoy – it’s the perfect way to discover new authors!
There are a couple of links to articles below which you may like to read… these are suggestions about books you really should read during your childhood!

We have a group of wonderful little fish who have decided to make our school a better place to be by giving up their time to look after our library…

I like reading and I am good tidying!
I have always loved books and am a fast reader. The school library is my favourite place in school and I want to keep it nice. Sometimes I find that books are in the wrong place or sprawled on the floor – this really saddens me. It’s like the library is the immune system of the school and whenever books are on the floor, the whole building is affected. I want to help keep the school healthy!
I love books and I am really helpful!
