Community Enrichment with Reading

The Grove visits to Arbury Court Library

 As part of developing a passion for reading and buzz around books, The Grove aim to encourage the children to take interest in our local community through reading aloud with new people.

One of our recent journeys was to The Grove’s local library, Arbury Court. We popped in one afternoon, taking our completed forms with us, so that we could get ourselves Cambridgeshire library cards. (Please ask Miss Lee-Fox if you would like one of these forms to get a family library card!) 

The children had a wonderful and sociable time, discussing new and old books, taking part in ‘book-blether’ ranging from making inferences about the picture books to questioning and making links between the themes of graphic novels and chapter books, with parents, their teachers and school staff. 

There is a huge range of books including a number of non-fiction books and magazines and children’s newspapers. 

It really was a fantastic opportunity and we look forward to our return in the next half of the Spring term.
