At St Luke's we love reading! There is nothing better than curling up and getting cosy with a good book. Whatever you like to read, St Luke's will have something for you. We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books in our class library as well as the Accelerated Reader library. If you have a favourite author or genre, why not ask if we have a copy in school?
It is essential that you read at home daily. This can be on your own, with a friend or perhaps a family member. You should spend approximately 20 minutes a day reading to improve your skills and vocabulary.
