Our school library is open to both parents and pupils every Tuesday after school 3:00 - 3:30pm. Come along a choose a book or join in with one of our activities. We also now have a lending library for parents so pop along and see if there is anything you would like to read.

Can't make Tuesday? Then don't worry the library is open to all pupils every Wednesday 12:30 - 1pm.


If you have any questions please free to speak to our Year 6 librarians (Amelia and Amarah) or Mrs. Wakefield.

Reading is a vital skill that all children need to learn. It is about making sense of the written word around them, enjoying books, and being able to use books to find information.

At school children have the opportunity to read a wide range of quality books, both fiction and non-fiction. 

When children are first beginning to learn to read, they will bring home their  'reading book' to practise what they have learnt in school. We also encourage children to take home books that interest them, to share with their parents and friends.

Teach a child to read and keep that child reading and you'll change everything. And I mean everything.

At Summerfields we use the Read, Write Inc (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their literacy.  RWI is a method of learning centred around letter sounds and phonics and we use it to help children in their reading and writing.
