At Bentley High Street, we are passionate about our school library and realise how fortunate we are to benefit from this facility. At the beginning of each academic year, children in KS2 are encouraged to apply for the role of a school librarian. These children are responsible for the day-to-day running of the library, such as its tidiness, signing books in and out, and even sending out late slips!
All the books in our school library have been included in the Accelerated Reader scheme where possible, and also banded into different genres and text-types to help children find their ideal book.
In the library we promote different authors and celebrate children and teachers reading for pleasure through creative use of our displays. We also use the library to host a weekly reading-club where children share their thoughts and predictions on a shared text.
