Reading for Pleasure

At Oakdene, we love seeing our children with real enthusiasm for reading, and strive to offer them a wide and varied selection of modern and classic reads to feed their love of reading.

Our children are loving their weekly sessions in our school library, perusing our selection of books.

To support and enhance the range of books we offer to our children, we have set up a wishlist with A New Chapter Books where parents and friends of the school can donate books to our school and class libraries. Please follow the link below to peruse our wish list. If you wish to support school by donating a book, follow the online instructions. Thank you in advance for your donations.

Oakdene Primary School Wishlist - A New Chapter Books

Many parents ask about suitable books for their children to read. The website above is a fantastic resource for children to explore their own love of books and discover books they would love to read. The website has a range of book recommendations for all ages. It provides them with the opportunity to meet books and authors that they might not choose themselves. It has a handy page in the recommendation section which allows the children to choose books based on ones they have read already. It is called, 'If they like.. they'll love.' So if your child loves Roald Dahl there will be another author recommended who write similar books. It is fantastic! Let us know if you find any books that you think your classmates would love to read. As a parent you will need to sign up (but it is free) and then you can explore the website with your child/children.

Happy reading!
