In the school library we have many different types of books which are organised into collections:
Learning Support – includes Barrington Stoke and Polish/Romanian language novels
Shelf Help *
Teen Fiction *
Classic Fiction **
All Junior, Teen, Learning Support and Classic fiction books are labelled with a genre sticker to help pupils pick a book that matches their interests.
There are fourteen genres available: Adventure, Animal Story, Comedy, Crime/Mystery, Family/School, Fantasy, Graphic Novels and Manga, Horror, Multi-Cultural/Scottish, Poetry, Romance, Science Fiction, Sport and War/History.
The Junior Fiction books are also labelled with a colour (red, blue, green, and orange) which helps pupils to pick a book at the right reading level for them.
Red = Confident reader
Blue = Capable reader
Green = Average reader
Orange = Unsure reader
