Library Newsletter & Summer Reading Challenge

18 July 2021

Here, at Cleeve Park, we are busy cultivating an identity as a reading school and community. Together, we are working hard to recognise the role that reading, comprehension and literacy play in
unlocking the subjects our students undertake. Please take the time to read through our newsletter where you will find hints and tips to support reading as well as detail on the benefits of reading, tips for reading together, suggested reading, how to access free eBooks, audiobooks and magazines and detail on the school reading programme ‘Accelerated Reader’ and school library system ‘Simple Little Library System.

Over the summer we are continuing to strongly encourage students to read Reading benefits both mental and emotional growth while helping to develop critical thinking skills, increases knowledge,
inventiveness, vocabulary and generally makes you smarter!
This year we are introducing a Summer Reading Challenge whereby students are asked to read and log 6 books or more in order to be entered into a prize draw Log sheets will be given out in form w/c 19th July.
