Reading for Pleasure

At Abbey Primary School, pupils are encouraged to develop a lifelong love of reading from an early age and an exciting reading culture is interwoven in many different ways.

These include:

  • Daily story time
  • Exciting class ‘Treasure Chests’
  • Weekly class library sessions
  • After School Reading Clubs
  • Subscriptions to the Education Library Service and other publications
  • Themed, celebration days such as World Book Day and National Poetry Day
  • Visits and Visitors


The much-loved golden ‘Treasure Chests’ in each classroom are stocked with a wide selection of modern and classic literature. These consist of age-appropriate, yet challenging, texts by a wide range of authors that complement the wider curriculum whilst igniting curiosity and promoting further reading in line with the personal interests and preferences of the children.
