Story Time

Story Time

At Barrow School we are determined that our pupils will develop a love of reading that will stay with them throughout their lives.

Every week we enjoy a story together as a whole school.

The links are here for the children to re-listen to some of the stories at home.

 As well as whole school story time there are lots of other things happening to help our pupils develop a love of reading, for example:

 

  • An outdoor reading shed which is open every playtime for the children to enjoy books and stories together.
  • Extreme reading competitions where we try and read in weird and wonderful places.

 

  • Use of Bug Club reading scheme across the whole school which has engaging paper and online books for children to read.

 

  • Mystery readers who come and read to the children in class.

 

  • Buddy readers where children pair up with an older pupil to enjoy a book together.

 

  • Regular adult reading volunteers from our local community who listen to children read every week. 

 

  • Recommend a book area in each class where children celebrate the books they have read and encourage others to try them too.

 

  • Juicy book club- small groups are taken to enjoy a book and a drink of juice together.

 

  • Special reading areas in each class room.

 

  • A cosy reading corner in our After School Club.
