Our library is split into two areas covering Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
We use “Junior Librarian” software and a number of children act as librarians under the guidance of Mrs Deverell, Teaching Assistant/Librarian.
Each child in the school has their own unique, bar coded, library bookmark ticket.
The Key Stage 1 library is used by the class teacher and children are able to borrow books under their guidance.
The Key Stage 2 library has undergone an exciting change! As we believe reading is at the heart of the curriculum, we have invested in some new books to engage readers. These books support our new reading scheme, Accelerated Reader, and come with a new system. Each book is allocated a number (e.g. 2.1) and children are given a number range (e.g. 1.4 - 2.6). Children will then select their own book from within their personal number range. These exciting new books are stored in our library and are therefore part of 'Junior Librarian'. This means that every time the children borrow a book we will have a log of the name of the book and the date that it was borrowed on. These books are used in our afternoon Accelerated Reader sessions, in Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to take home a book from their class library.
