Parents guide to MyON - Online digital book collection
World of Stories Event
Reading at Whitehall Junior School is a key priority. We want our children to enjoy diving into a book, which could take them to another world. We want them immersing themselves in non-fiction to find out more about the Stone Age, Romans, Ancient Greece or the Mayans. We want to them to read to help relax them before bedtime. We want them to read a range of books, which they can discuss and recommend to their peers or family members.
To help them achieve this, we are re-opening our school library before and after school and inviting parents and caregivers in, to choose a book with your child.
The library will be open for children and their parents/careers before and after school. It will be open from 8:30- 8:40 Monday to Thursday and from 3:15-3:45 Monday to Thursday. All children will need to be accompanied by an adult at all times in the library. To begin with it will be in years, we will review this. If your child has a sibling in the school they can come to either session/day.
Please see some suggested books for your child to read in each Year group. These are recommendations of books that are popular and suitable for the age groups intended and some link to the curriculum taught in that year. There are many other fantastic books that you children may like to read which can be found in the school library, class book corner and local council libraries. We recommend that your child read to you or independently every at least three times a week for around day for around 30 minutes. This can be an excellent way for your child to unwind and let their imaginations run free. Age appropriate magazines and newspapers are also good reading material, these will be available in our library. The children will be coming home with a reading diary to be completed at home.
