At Poppleton Road Primary School, we are incredibly fortunate to have such an amazing, diverse collection of books in our school library. We have fiction books from a range of genres, appropriate for different reading ages, as well as a great selection of non-fiction texts about a range of topics, including history, geography, art, cooking and science.
Every afternoon, during lunchtime, the library is open to children as a calm, quiet place to enjoy reading or to choose a new book to borrow and enjoy at home. There are also iPads available for them to practise on TT Rock Stars.
As well as a dedicated member of our teaching and learning team, children from Year 6 are in charge of lending and returning books via the library scanning system.
We are immensely proud of our library and view it as a real asset to embedding a love of reading. As a way to encourage shared storytelling and reading for pleasure in our pupils, we love to welcome families to enjoy the space too. Once ever half term, after school, families are able to join us for a Stay and Read session in the library; we open the library to EYFS and KS1 on one day and KS2 on another.
We hope that by visiting Stay and Read, families will become part of our reading community.
