A visit to the local library
As the end of the school term approaches we decided to visit our local library with the Reception and year one children.
We are very proud that our pupils have already started to read in both English and Spanish and therefore the teachers decided to take this a step further, trying to create the habit of reading for pleasure by visiting the library together.
The children were able to see the variety of books available in both languages and had time to relax and enjoy a few moments reading a book of their choice quietly on their own. They were all very excited to be able to choose some books to take back to school and learnt how the system of borrowing books from the library works. We are sure that this will not be their one and only visit and the children will take their parents to visit the library often.
