At Oakfield Primary School we are particularly proud of our wonderful library. We are passionate about books and seek to teach our children to love reading and books.
We have a wide selection of fiction, non-fiction and picture books. All children are able to come to
the library to choose library books and in most year group they are able to take two books home at a time.
Our school librarian, Mrs Debbie Lailey, is available to support the children four days a week and has regular contact with children across all year groups.
From Year Two we use a reading programme called Accelerated Reader, where the children are individually matched to books they can read with suitable challenge and accessibility. They then complete an online quiz which asks comprehension questions to ensure they have understood what they are reading.
Author of the Term
Each term we focus on a children's author. In our assemblies, story times and library times we find out more about the author and read their books.
Our author for the Summer Term 2020 is Julia Donaldson. She has written hundreds of books, songs and poems and is the author of many of the countries best loved book characters. Click below to hear staff members reading their favourite Julia Donaldson books.
