The School Library - Book Nest
The School Library is open to all children to come in and read a book, and children from Year 1 to 6 can borrow a book with parental permission.
Our beautiful woodland mural and library tree make a cosy and relaxing background to enjoy a wide range of books from picture books to teenager books, and a variety of non-fiction too. The books are organised to follow the Oxfordshire libraries system so that children can follow their favourite authors or subjects in either the School or in any of the Oxfordshire libraries.
The School has a Reading Committee which meets twice a term in the Library to share ideas on how to promote reading throughout the school as well as passing on book requests from the classes they represent. Reading Committee members chosen for 2017-18 are Eve and Joshua in Year 6, Aleesa and Amy in Year 5, Cameron and Summer in Year 4, Lazar and Lulu in Year 3 and Nifemi and Elliot in Year 2.
We are proud of the Reading Bus in KS2 playground, which provides a peaceful reading haven at lunchtimes, and we are hoping to extend the book collection here as the year progresses. We are keen to take reading outside into the KS1 playground too. But we will need more books to do this. If you have any unwanted children's books in good condition, particularly annuals, then please pass them to the Library so we can give them a second readership.
