Reading Re-vamped!

Each year group was awarded funding from the Friends of Westfield to create an inspirational space for reading in the classroom.   “The children are so keen to get into our beautiful garden.  It has made a huge difference to their enthusiasm for reading” commented Mrs Bell, Year 2 class teacher. “The aim of the revamped reading corners is to encourage a love of reading and reading for pleasure.  We really want children to be rushing to pick up a book.” explained Kate Atkinson, deputy headteacher.  The staffs’ creativity knew no bounds with areas themed as castles, forests, under the sea and even a dragon’s cave to name a few.  The school is hoping to create more inspirational areas as the year progresses to link with the new curriculum and encourage children to be lifelong readers.
