Oakley Vale Primary school

Class Read - Storytime

Literature is probably the most powerful medium through which children have a chance to inhabit the lives of those who are like them. All children need to imagine themselves as the main protagonist in a story: celebrating a birthday, going shopping, being ill, having a tantrum, having their hair cut, worrying about a new sibling, being the superhero, going camping, visiting the seaside and having adventures.


Every day your child will be immersed in story as their teacher reads a great book for them to listen to, talk about, think about and enjoy.

Here are the books each teacher is currently reading to their class:
