Reading areas


As part of our whole school drive focussing on reading, each class was allocated a budget to decide how they would like to enhance their classroom reading environment. This was really exciting as we got the opportunity to decide on what we wanted in our own classrooms; we discussed it as a class then had to ensure we stuck to our budget which is where our maths skills really came in handy!  Have a look at some of the reading zone pictures below- let us know what you think!  Thank you to Book Council who took the photos.
