On our shelves we have a range of reading schemes that are part of the colour coded system. The have a variety of reading books from the following schemes: Hiennemann Sails, Rigby Rockets and Rigby Star, Collins Big Cats, Ginn- Lighthouse, All Aboard, Oxford Reading Tree - Fireflies and X Projects.

All children are able to take books home to read with an adult, this shared learning helps children to practice their reading skills and develop a lifelong love of reading.

As well as teaching the skills necessary to become confident readers, we have our own library full of exciting books - this is situated in our Learning Hub in the centre of the school.
