Reading Gardens

Each classroom has a reading garden. In this special area of our class, we have access to a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry books. The books are all forward-facing so that we can easily see the front covers. We share these books with our friends or read them on our own. We have time to talk to our friends about the books and make recommendations to each other.

Over the autumn term, we are introducing Favourite Five books. These are 5 books which we will read again and again, at the end of the day. We will become really familiar with these books - the layout, any repeating phrases, the structure of a story - and we will also learn new vocabulary.
