Reading is the most important way we learn in school and in life. That’s why we are proud to be joining schools around the world in celebrating International School Library Month.
We've had an extra special School Library Month this year after opening our new library in September. It was a great event and we've already seen our pupils taking advantage of the new space and book collection.
Organised globally by the International Association of Librarians, this month highlights the value of these amazing spaces, and the hardworking staff and volunteers that make them run. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Fairy Tales and Folk Tales around the World’. You can see what other schools around the world have been doing to celebrate here: https://iasl-online.org/ISLM.
This year, we’re really focussing on literacy and reading in our school. After a year of remote and blended learning, it’s more important than ever to make sure every child is developing their reading skills. Weaker reading and writing skills are often damaging to other important academic and social skills.
Reading at home also gives children a huge advantage, and if you would like to borrow books to enjoy with your children at home, please talk to your child’s teacher!
We are excited to recognise this event and to celebrate librarians as we continue to promote the link between literacy, creativity, and academic progress.
