Read all about it! Reading bug strikes at Roseberry Academy!

November 9th, 2016

This morning, I was met with an amazing sight as I walked into our new library. Excited children were rushing to find the new books that we have recently bought, thanks to RAFT’s generous donation of £2000 and our Scholastic Book Fair commission. They were recommending books, reading the blurb on the back of each book and chattering to each other about what they were going to read. Then…silence. Children settled down on beanbags and comfy chairs to read…silence…reading…more silence…

As staff walked through the library, I saw their faces light up. The result of their combined hard work to improve our library (including choosing books that would interest boys in particular) was clear to see. When children asked if they could come in to read before school every day from now on, I knew that our efforts to promote reading in school had been successful!  Thank you to the adults in school who worked their socks off for our children – again! Thanks also to the Enquire Learning Trust who has also recognised our efforts and pledged funding to support us in purchasing new furniture, fixtures and fittings to make our library even better than it is already!

In a recent newsletter, I asked whether we could make Roseberry Academy into Roseberry ‘Reading’ Academy. What do you think the answer should be?

    We’ve had a lot of indoor play due to the weather this week. So it’s been fantastic to see children desperate to get into the library to see what new books have arrived!
