The children were recently asked how they feel about reading at
Annesley Primary School, as a result of pupil feedback,
the library has been renamed and reopened as Annesley's Reading Shack.
New brightly coloured seating has been installed, this is providing a much larger seating area for children to sit and enjoy the Reading Shack. This reading space is open every morning playtime. It is supervised by adults in school and provides opportunities for supporting reading and for sharing stories with peers, with the adult on standby to help children to select and enjoy suitable books. There is a large, horseshoe shaped table as well, which will be used for group work and individual support e.g. mental health. This doubles up as a calming, colouring area, as requested by the children.
The books have been reorganised. Any old books were cleared out and donated to the Police Convoy. Lots of new books have arrived, with a range of genres, which were requested in the children's feedback.
Class access to the Reading Shack is timetabled, ensuring all children have stories read to them.
This is the winning design for our new Reading Shack! Congratulations to Ellie in Year 1. Mrs Roberts, Mrs Wraith and Mr Brown had a tough time choosing the winning design. This will now be made into a permanent sign. Well done to our runners up... Daniel in Year 2 and Amelia in Year 4!
