Reading for pleasure 

A door to success



Aside from the sheer joy of exercising the imagination, research shows reading for pleasure improves literacy, social skills, health, and learning outcomes.

 Reading for pleasure, is also referred to as independent, leisure or recreation learning.

 At Fairfield Park we promote this reading pleasure through the wealth of books used in the curriculum and books read with the children. Our books our displayed on class doors, all classes have special reading areas, our libraries and learning Streets are inviting and adults model enjoyment of books by sharing these through class activities, project weeks, diversity days and assemblies.

 Please see staff recommendations and our reading newsletters and enjoy books!
