Meet our reading ambassadors for 2023-2024!
Keep an eye on for lots of events that the reading ambassadors will be hosting this academic year.
At Yohden Primary School, we encourage reading for pleasure. Every classroom has an engaging reading area, including books matching both the ability and interests of the children. Classes also have access to a well-stocked, school library.
Staff nurture a love for books through enthusiasm and enjoyment, promoting wonder and curiosity while exploring a new book. We plan for regular opportunities throughout the year focussing on books, for example World Book Day. Books are used to enhance our curriculum in all subjects. Classrooms are updated half termly, ensuring children access a range of subject based books. For example: Science, Geography, History, RE. Additional to this, adults share stories daily within their classes. In all classes we enjoy listening to an adult read everyday.
Reading with your child can support them in developing a love of reading. The OU have come up with guides and videos to support parents with this.
