“You can’t teach pleasure: you have to share it.”
At Bispham Drive, we acknowledge the importance of reading for pleasure as a springboard for enabling children to become confident, happy and enthusiastic readers who want to read of their own volition. Our aim is to establish a community of readers that share, recommend and discuss a variety of texts together. Research shows that reading plays a crucial role in life outcomes and so we believe nurturing a passion for reading is one of the greatest things we can instill in our children and we all have a part to play in this process.
We aim to promote Reading for Pleasure in these ways:
We hope to expand our community of readers to include parents and carers and the wider community in the future.There are links on this page to help families engage in lots of reading activities together and we encourage you to share with us (via our class pages or Twitter) any reading activities that you participate in.
Top ten books (7-11) that you can listen to.
Maybe you could recommend it to someone else in your class or on Bookworms Google Classroom.
Click here to download the list, choose a book (remember the age range is up to 11 -so choose carefully or with an adult), find somewhere comfy (or make a reading den) and have a listen. PLEASE make sure an adult is aware – or even better, get them to listen to the story with you!🤪You could then discuss the book afterwards – #booksincommon #bookblether 📚📚📚
