“The more that you read, the more things that you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr Seuss
At St Dunstan’s, our intention and aspiration for each of our children is for them to enter their next stage of life and, eventually, the world of work as articulate and literate individuals with a strong love of reading. We recognise the responsibility to send children to secondary school having mastered at least the basic elements of reading. We aim to ensure that all children have the chance to follow an enriching curriculum by getting them reading early:
learning to read → reading to learn
Non - Stop Reading at St Dunstan's!
We read in lessons but it doesn't stop there - look below at what else we do!!
Year 5 children have volunteered to give up some of their lunchtimes to read with Year 1 and 2 children.
Books and Bagels!
Can there be anything better on a cold Friday morning than curling up with a good book, a bagel and a glass of juice? Come and join us at 8.45am in the school hall and start the day in the best possible way! First come, first served!
Only Girls Aloud (or Allowed!!) Starting in Autumn term, a select group of KS2 girls are gathering at lunchtimes with Mrs Stevens to discuss books, books and more books!
Look out in the library for their suggestions about the best books available.
Premier League Reading Stars
