Patron of Reading
Our much loved Patron of Reading is Conrad Burdekin. He visits our school regularly to run Poetry Workshops and join in the reading fun. He is incredibly inspirational and supportive of our school.
As well as our 'class readers', we enjoy taking books out of our school library where we have a good choice of fiction, non-fiction and poetry books.
Power of Reading
At High Bank, we follow The Power of Reading which excites the children in English lessons. We enjoy reading a variety of exciting and interesting texts across a range of genres. These texts inspire our writing, develop our comprehension and uplevel our word choices and vocabulary.
