Reading for Pleasure

In relation to the key focus of Reading for Pleasure on 2017-2018 SIP school has approached this via several strands.
Initially an informative and creative session was held for staff from the Federation as part of a joint Inset day. The session explored why and what learners read for pleasure and how to develop and encourage this reading on a cross curricular basis.
Staff had been set a flip learning task and discussed their approach to Reading for Pleasure and engaged with other staff in what they had been reading over the holidays.
In the autumn term all new learners to Oakfield have taken part in Bookbuzz. They have been give a free book of their choice from a selection of titles from The Book Trust and will keep this book in order to generate enthusiasm for reading independently. A display in school highlights their choices and enthusiasm for the books and learner voice support this.
Each week in the school newsletter we have a top reading tips section for parents: this offers guidance to parents in bite sized chunks of how to engage with their child and develop home reading.
