Books, reading and life in a school library

Classes in the library


We are now half way through the term. Wondering where the time has gone!

Today saw an S1 class doing some library induction activities, following up from a group discussion and map drawing exercise last week. Today pupils filled in their own personal library maps.

They also had a first look at CfE Outcome LIT 3-11a Reading for Enjoyment and choice

I regularly select and read, listen to or watch texts for enjoyment ans interest, and I can express how ell they meet my needs and expectation and give reasons, with evidence, for my personal response

I can identify sources to develop the range of my reading.

“From the start of term I have been reading in class, home and in the library.”

“From the start of term we’ve been reading in class and at home.”

“Since the start of term I have been reading The Hunger Games which I picked myself and really enjoying it.”

“I chose a book to read and it’s good but confusing.”

“I have been choosing books that I enjoy reading from the library and at home.”

“I enjoyed reading George’s Marvellous Medicine in the library.”

“I chose books that I enjoy or ones that people recommended to me.”

Afterwards, pupils spent 15-20 minutes doing personal reading.
