Reading for Pleasure
At Milford Primary School we believe that reading for pleasure is the entitlement of every child. We work hard to engage and motivate our children to develop a love of lifelong reading.
Links with the local English Hub
Mrs R Jones, our Early Reading and Phonics Lead is currently completing the 'Transforming your Schools Reading Culture' course with the local English Hub to develop reading across the school.
If you would like further support with developing a love of reading at home then please contact your child's class teacher or follow the link to the Open University website below for ideas.
Reading for Pleasure Around School
Our library area situated in The Zone has been revamped by our wonderful Year 6 children (with the support of Mrs Griffiths). It is now an enjoyable space to read non-fiction texts. Well done everyone!
Each classroom provides children with a space to read. This is a safe space to read for enjoyment.
Story telling assemblies take place each half term. The children vote for a text chosen by the teaching staff in school. They then hear their chosen story the following day. The children love this democratic process!
Reading for Pleasure Parent Cafes
Parents/guardians of pupils in EYFS and Key Stage One are invited into school to read a book for pleasure with their children.
The children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the activities linked to poetry. We were also fortunate enough to take part in virtual workshops with the published poet, Joshua Seigal!
Our children now have the opportunity to read for pleasure during break and lunchtimes. They choose from a selection of texts from our fabulous new bookcase.
KS1 Story Time
Each day, the children vote for a text that they would like to hear at the end of the day.
