Every Child A Reader
At Bedford Hall we see that Reading for pleasure has a dramatic impact on educational outcomes, mental wellbeing and is also a huge magical experience in itself. Reading ignites children's imagination. We want all children to have the opportunity to be exposed to a wide range of quality texts during their time in school - ranging from classic to modern day authors. Bedford Hall aim to do this in a number of ways:- through our bespoke, 'Book as a Hook' curriculum, visits to school from authors and poets, Reading Study and Communication lessons, Class book - shared in daily story time and of course independent reading opportunities.
There's nothing quite like a book at bedtime. It's the perfect end to the day, a chance to snuggle up and share the magic of stories together. We hope the book lists attached will support our parents and carers in choosing high quality books to share with your child.
