Relax and Read

Relax and read is an opportunity for the children to choose their own reading books individually, in pairs or in groups, and find somewhere comfy to sit and read. The children are allowed to read out loud, share stories and talk about what they are reading. These sessions are all about developing a shared love of reading and exposing the children to a wide variety of text types, which they may not have access to outside school. We also want the children to become confident in explaining their own preferences when it comes to reading.
