At Monkton Infants, we ensure reading for pleasure is embedded into our daily reading. We promote reading for pleasure in lots of ways. Our school library is full with lots of wonderful books for our children to take home and enjoy. Each class has a timetabled slot when they can choose a book and take it home to share with their family weekly. In addition, every day each class votes on a book to read during story time. Each child has a marble and votes between two books for the class teacher to read at the end of the day.

Every child has a reading book that is fully decodable and matched to their phonic ability from Reception to Year 2.
