The well-stocked library is in a sunny room over the school hall and contains over 3000 books, both stories and information books for all abilities, ages and interests.  It is run by our three volunteer Village Grannies, and children can visit it any day at lunchtime.  Children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 may borrow one book at a time and in Years 3 to 6, two books.  A record is kept of what each child borrows and children are encouraged to think of books as food and borrow widely to have a varied diet of 'roast dinner' reading as well as 'a bag of crisps' books - and fruit and vegetables, even if not quite five books a day.

 

Each class visits the Library regularly at least once a fortnight and is introduced to different parts of the library - fables and legends, fiction authors, and varied subjects, in all areas of knowledge.  Additional books may be borrowed for class work. Library skills: borrowing and returning, book care, social behaviour in a library, how libraries are set out etc are all addressed.  It is a happy and purposeful place.  In addition to this provision, each class has a bookcase with its own collection of books.

 

Once a month we welcome pre-school children into our library, this session is run by our school librarians and Sally Haywood our school governor.
