Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Recommended Reads

We are delighted to announce our Recommended Reads scheme. 

We want to share the love of reading amongst our Parkwood community by recommending our favourite books to each other. 

Every child in the Academy has completed a book recommendation and these have been beautifully presented in a Recommended Reads book for each classroom reading area. This way children are sharing favourites with all of their class friends. Please do ask your child’s class teacher if you would like to see the book. 

Three children from each class have been selected to share their recommendations in assembly. This way children are sharing favourites with the whole school … younger and older year groups and children are finding out more about a wide range of books and authors.

The school council has deliberated, voted and chosen one child from each class to have their recommendation published to parents. This will be announced on the weekly update each week this term and will appear on the website and Academy Facebook and twitter pages. Please look out for these special post. 

Recommended Reads is not just for children though! Staff are keen to inspire each other and our families to keep reading too. All staff have recommended a favourite book and these have been discussed together at school and now will be shared with yourselves. Again these will be will be announced on the weekly update each week this term and will appear on the website and Academy Facebook and twitter pages. Please look out for these special posts too and we hope that you will find something that you too would like to read.

We hope you enjoy our Recommended Reads scheme!

Thank you for your continued support with reading.
