Stoke Hill Infant and Nursery School Reading Spine
As part of our focus on ‘Reading for Pleasure’ we have established a ‘Reading Spine’ of high quality books that we consider a ‘must read’ for all the children at our school.
These books have been carefully selected in consultation with the Devon School Library service and consist of a range of stories and poetry that teachers will read aloud and share with children during the end of day story times. We have chosen books that promote and nurture children's love of reading, and discussion, deepening children’s understanding of the chosen texts and extending their vocabulary.
We have included a range of popular classics and newly published titles, some traditional stories and some modern. We have looked for books that are inclusive and reflect the diversity of our school population, both through the text and the illustrations.
We have a list of titles specific for each year group, from Nursery to Year 2. It is our intention that every child will have experienced these highly engaging books by the time they leave us at the end of Year 2. Have a look at the attached lists to see which books your child may be reading this year!
