Reading For Pleasure

Thank you to all the parents/carers of Reception up to Year 4 children who have joined our Reading Events on Fridays throughout September and October.  They have been very well attended.


Year 5 & 6 Parents/Carers have been provided with an information leaflet in lieu of a meeting due to half-term.  Please contact school if you would like more hints and advice on how to read with your child at home and learn about the importance of developing a love of reading. 


At Our Lady and Saint Philomena’s Catholic Primary School we believe that reading is crucial for children’s development. Reading should not be seen as a chore but as pleasure to enjoy.

We've achieved the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark for stop Silver!

In order raise the profile of Reading for Pleasure we have had lots of events and we're excited to hold lots more!


I wonder what will happen on World Book Day 2021...

Helpful hints to support reading at home.

Reading Rockets!


You may have heard your child talk about reading lots more books this term, well this is because we're holding a challenge in school.


Reading Rockets are present in every classroom.


Children must read 5 Home Reader books and have this recorded in their Reading Record. They can use their bookmark to keep track.


Every 5 books means they move up the rocket, they get their Reading Record signed by a teacher of their choice, and if they get to 50+ there will be a special prize! (Watch this space)


Let the challenge begin!
