Reading For Pleasure


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!

Every class gets time in the library this term, a chance to read with friends, discuss favourite books and take out a book on loan from our brilliant Year 6 Librarians.

The Library has been well kept to a high standard, come and use it at lunch times. It's also had a bit of a makeover, as you can see from the photos!



Keep your eyes peeled for dates for the Scholastic Book Fair this year and World Book day news!



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!
