New Areas in School!
‘The journey of your imagination starts with the turning of a single page.’
Here at Monkhouse we are always striving to develop children’s engagement and success with reading. We know that one of the key skills that children need to guarantee lifelong success in learning is to be able to read fluently and confidently, which will in turn open doors to all kinds of new worlds for them. One of our main focuses in school is to develop children’s reading ability as well as their love of reading, allowing them to see the importance of this skill, and how much fun becoming immersed in a book can be.
A school library is undoubtedly one of the finest resources for promoting reading for pleasure, so we have put our own spin on the library this year to capture the imaginations of children across school.
Each term, we immerse our classrooms to create a purposeful learning environment, which is bursting with ore and wonder for our children; this year, our aim is to make our school library the showstopper of them all. With a little fairy dust, we have transformed our school library into a magical reading zone that children can’t wait to go to. Through a Hogwarts design, children feel enthused and captured from the moment they step into the world of make believe.
We feel passionate that our school library must:
- provide a relaxing and enjoyable environment, which houses a wide and inclusive range of resources to support reading and promote a love of books.
- play a vibrant role in engaging children into a culture of reading by inspiring their imaginations and bringing fun into reading.
- provide a place for collaborative learning, creativity, imaginative play and so much deserved wind down time.
Enjoy some photos of our library this term…I wonder what next term will bring!
Over the Summer2017 the art room has had an amazing make over. We now have three sinks all with hot water, new storage cupboards, brand new floor and freshly painted walls. Its looking great.
We have been enjoying using our new room to complete Art and Design activities already this term.
