Learning Resource Centre (LRC)

Lower school library

The library is open from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm every day. All reception to year 6 children have one timetabled library visit every week with their class teachers to develop a love of reading and to promote a daily reading session. 

The lower school library holds a variety of texts:

  • Books (fiction, early reader, EYFS, beginners, non-fiction and reference)
  • Big Books (fiction, non-fiction and reference)
  • Dual language
  • Picture books

 

Ways to help your child enjoy reading

  • Read with your child every day and ask questions about the book.
  • Check your child has an understanding of what they are reading e.g do they understand the meaning of words and are they able summarise what they have read?
  • Encourage your child to engage a variety of different text e.g fiction, non-fiction, newspapers, radio, audio stories and comics.
