At Fleetville Junior School, we are keen to promote a love of reading and encourage children to explore books from different genres.
The children are given a variety of opportunities to read for pleasure and be introduced to different authors. There is designated time each day for the children to listen to stories read aloud and time throughout the week for key reading skills to be taught in whole class and 1:1 sessions.
As part of their legacy, the Year 6 class of 2021 raised money for a book vending machine. Children who consistently show the school values are able to select a book from the vending machine to take home. The books in the machine are carefully chosen and either link to the subjects taught in the children's Learning Journey or their interests. There are a variety of picture books, fiction and non-fiction books available to choose from.
