In Mab Lane we LOVE reading! We have a fantastic library, full of fun and exciting books, and cosy spaces to read. We have wonderful reading areas in every classroom – reading caves, comfy couches, and even a bed where we can snuggle up for bedtime stories! Every few weeks we have an exciting reading event to celebrate, and all year round we have some fantastic groups and activities, all about READING!

In Key Stage Two, we love our Reading Buddies! Children from Years 3 and 5, and 4 and 6, have been paired up for some one-to-one reading time every week. We read with the same partner every week, and our teachers have seen lots of improvement, both in those reading and those being read to as well! As well as enjoying stories together, we also talk about what’s happened in each part, and ask questions to check everyone understands. Next term, we want to do Reading Buddies in Key Stage One too!
Who’s the best reader in Mab Lane?? We have some very exciting competitions going on at the moment, all about reading. Firstly, there is our Catch me Reading spider web! If you bring in a photo of yourself reading in an unusual place, you may get caught in our web in the library. We’ve had some weird and wonderful entries already – Michael on a Lambanana, Julia on a trampoline, Eve-Lily on a rollercoaster, Abbie upside-down….
The Book Bus is visiting school in October and April. Please come along and buy some lovely books.
In Spring Term, our school will be celebrating World Book Day. Last year we had a dress up and PJ theme... how should we celebrate this year?
