Reading for Pleasure
Whether your child is a bonafide bookworm, a casual reader or someone who reluctantly picks up books, we will support them in their journey through literature from Nursery through to Year 6. Each classroom at Woodfield has a fantastic selection of reading, including shorter tales, graphic novels, non-fiction and the weekly First News.
Reading is something that truly opens up worlds, where children's curiosity and vocabulary grows and develops at the pace which is right for them. It really is a passion here at Woodfield and we would love for you to ask for our support in choosing new books for your child or making suggestions as to how you can make the most of your one-to-one reading time. Just contact your class teacher via Dojo or through the school office.
This spring, we have experienced a brilliant World Book Day, celebrating 25 years of the event. The awesome picture book, Belonging, formed the basis of our learning across the school for the day, seeing children create art work, writing and discussions around the rich content. We are incredibly fortunate to have access to a range of fantastic reading resources, from Oxford Owls to the Plymouth Library Service for Schools. Take some time time to explore these excellent resources with your children and please get in touch if you have misplaced their log ins or you require a new one.
