Reading at Shibden Head 

Reading is at the heart of everything we do at Shibden Head Academy and vocabulary underpins the whole of our curriculum. In every classroom you will see a reading area that promotes the love of reading. Children are also encouraged to read at home through the use of our reading raffles and one child in each class every half term is chosen to pick a book of their choice! The more the children read, the more chance they have of winning.

Timetabled daily is an opportunity for children to hear someone else read and share a class novel. We encourage our children to read as much as possible for pleasure.
