Daubeney Loves Reading

Reading for Pleasure

At Daubeney we are committed to creating an ethos and an environment that excites, enthuses and inspires children to read for their own enjoyment. We aim to develop a community of readers with opportunities to share, recommend and discuss books.

We want our children to have exposure to a wide range of texts and encourage them read a variety of genres across different media:

  • Fiction: Novels, short stories, jokes, comics, poetry, lyrics, plays and scripts.
  • Non-fiction: Reference books, newsletters, letters, emails, biographies, newspapers, magazines, books about their hobbies/interests, websites.

The 100 Best Children's Books

"We’re living in a golden age of young-adult literature, when books ostensibly written for teens are equally adored by readers of every generation. In the likes of Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen, they’ve produced characters and conceits that have become the currency of our pop-culture discourse—and inspired some of our best writers to contribute to the genre."

Reading Skills 

At Daubeney we develop our love of reading and comprehension by using the 7 reading skills: predicting, inferring, clarifying, summarising, making connections, evaluating and asking questions.

You learnt how to use these in in your reading sessions with your teacher and have them stuck in your home reading records. Remember to use the skills when you are reading at home. Here are some resources to help you.
