Supporting reading at home

Here are our latest reading responses from our Bedtime Bags from EYFS to Year Six.

Throughout World Book Day, our children went to another classroom to share a story with their younger friends.

Each child received a free book on World Book Day to help promote a love of reading.

Focused Author Books

Focused Author Books

At Old Clee Primary Academy we recognise how reading to children on a regular basis is essential for their reading development. To promote this in our school, we have a new focused author which we introduce to children once a term. The class teacher reads the focused author book while each child follows the story in their own copy. Children are able to take their copy home so they can discuss the story, re-read what has been read to them in school or, as many like to, read on so they know what happens before anyone else!

Our wonderful libraries.


In both KS1 and KS2 we have fantastic new libraries which both the children and staff absolutely love. Both libraries are full of exciting non-fiction and fiction books for us all to enjoy.

Bedtime Bags

As we understand the importance of promoting a love for reading and we know that children thoroughly enjoy being read to, each Friday two lucky children from each class get to take home our wonderful Bedtime Bags. Each bag contains a lovely book, a reading log, a packet of biscuits and two sachets of hot chocolate. Our children look forward to having their book read to them while tucking into their yummy biscuits and hot chocolate.
