Recommended Reading!

The more you read the more you know...

As I am sure you are aware, as well as being an enjoyable pastime, reading impacts hugely on
children’s writing ability and general learning. We encourage children to read as much as possible,
both at home and in school. Here are some personal favourites and we have included a link to a website that outlines further books for your little book worms!

We have a bookshelf/reading area in class and school library where children are welcome to take books home to read. They are also invited to bring books from home in to read for pleasure! Our local library in Pontefract is amazing and we work closely with them throughout the year - if you would like any information on how you can use the library further please don't hesitate to ask us or visit the library in town.
