At St. John's, we are passionate about making sure that every child leaves our school as a confident reader who is excited and inspired about books and reading.
Our Reading Journey ensures that every child is given the opportunity to develop the key skills they need to decode and engage with a range of texts. Just as important as this, is our mission to find every individual 'the book' that will switch them on to the fascinating world of reading.
We believe that high quality texts are the key to engaging young people with reading. Well chosen and challenging texts are shared with classes across school to enthuse pupils, help develop vocabulary and the skills to be a thoughtful reader.
Our Reading Ambassadors help us select texts and make recommendations across school. They love visiting book shops and researching online to find the best books!
Our School Librarians make sure that recommendations are displayed and that our libraries continue to be a great place to read alone or share a book with friends.
