Our well resourced, inviting school library allows all of our children at Castletown to have the freedom to explore reading through a wide range of high quality texts, instilling a deep love and excitement about reading. Our fantastic team of school librarians works hard to make the library a dynamic, engaging and interactive resource for everyone to enjoy by regularly running competitions, producing displays that encourage children to widen their reading choices and creating themed book displays.
Our Library books are linked to the Accelerated Reader scheme. This allows children some independence and ownership of their reading choices by giving them a range of levels to select from whilst being carefully monitored and guided by their teachers to keep each child's reading progress on track.
Children read and 'quiz' on what they have read both in school and at home and are set personalised targets each term. Parents can also monitor their child's reading development through the Accelerated Reader home login.
Our Whole school 'Reading Wall of Fame' allows every single child in our school to celebrate their reading engagement and success as the year progresses, helping to build a positive culture where the joy of reading touches every corner of our school.
