Last week, our first Book Burst Sessions, led by Jeanette Kemp, provided a tempting taster of a wide range of wonderful reading books.

Jeanette shared a selection of new book titles suitable for each year group.

We are fortunate that QAPAFA fund termly Book Burst Sessions for each class.

At The Queen Anne, we aim to inspire pupils and engage them in reading widely.

We value and support reading for pleasure through:

  • adults reading aloud daily in class
  • inviting book areas in each classroom.
  • providing time to read in class and develop a sociable reading environment where children enjoy reading together and sharing books
  • planning opportunities for the children to engage in a range of genres each year.
  • providing a range of cross-curricular books
  • regular use of the school  library
  • engaging and exciting termly Book Burst sessions.

Through provision of a wide and varied reading diet, we foster a love of familiar books and a keen appetite for new titles.
