Reading for Pleasure

At St Mary and St Michael, we want to keep our children excited and enthusiastic about reading and make them want to pick up books and read more independently. This page gives information about what independent reading looks like in our school and why our school have adopted this approach.


An overview of what Reading for Pleasure in our school looks like can be found in our Reading for Pleasure parents' booklet. The pages in this booklet give more information on this and some background on why independent reading continues to be so important for children as they progress through our school.
