Picture Books for Pleasure

 Last March, on World Book Day, here in Salesian Primary School we launched an initiative to further promote all pupils love of reading. 

We purchased approximately 500 well written, beautifully illustrated picture books for all age groups. Since March pupils have been enjoying whole class critical thinking and book talk sessions, as well as exploring books in small groups, pairs or individually. Older classes have also engaged in paired reading with younger pupils, in which case both the older and younger pupil gain benefits and enjoyment.


It has been a pleasure reading our new picture books and each class group has a new set of books to look forward to next year. This fantastic initiative is supported by The Salesian Sisters' Ministry Fund, for which we are very grateful.
