The School Library
During the week each class has a dedicated library session, during which they are encouraged to select new books and talk about what they are reading. The emphasis is on reading for pleasure as we believe that reading is something that we can all enjoy. As well as the regular weekly sessions (see below for the timetable), we also organise events such as book fairs, book swaps, storytelling sessions and activities related to World Book Day.
