Our Library 'The Book Bay'

The Book Bay (our school library) was opened in December 2019 by the best selling Yorkshire author Gervase Phinn. It is themed to link to our school ‘Locality Driver’. Classes enjoy a timetabled library session per week, but also have the freedom to use the library at other times during the week to enhance learning. During library sessions, children engage in ‘Book Talk’ when they talk about what they are reading, recommend books to others and discuss their favourite authors. Our team of Year 6 librarians are responsible for running our lunchtime reading clubs, writing our termly reading newsletter to our families, maintaining the library space and supporting younger children to make choices about books they read. It is a warm and welcoming space where the children can lose themselves in a good book.
