At Ackton Pastures, we strive to create a reading culture that teaches our children about the many joys of books. We aim to create a love of reading in all our children so that they not only learn how to read but use reading to further their learning in other subjects. It is our intention to teach children how to be lifelong readers who can read fluently, accurately and with confidence. We also understand that reading is a tool to develop socially, emotionally, and culturally and teachers choose high quality books that engage, inspire and provide a wealth of vocabulary for our children.
“So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on the wall!”
