Ridgeway Reading Progression Map 2021 - 2022

At Ridgeway, we understand the importance of reading for pleasure and promote this in lots of ways.  Our school library is packed with thousands of wonderful books for our children to borrow.  Each class has a timetabled slot when they can browse the books and take one home to share with their grown-up or read independently.

Libraries Week 2021

 

Year 3 had a great time meeting South Shields born author John Walker Pattison at Cleadon Park Library as part of Libraries Week.  He read us one of his adventures from his book, 'Strange Trips and Weird Adventures.'  Then the children created an illustration based on the adventure.
