Each classroom displays a stimulating book corner based around a topic or theme. These book corners are inviting to allow children to independently access a range of fiction and non-fiction books throughout the school day. Our book corners are also used for during our weekly DEAR (Drop Everything and Read) sessions.

Aspiration curriculum driver: we develop a love of reading for pleasure through a range of books.

At St Mary’s, each class teacher at the start of the year works with their new class to create their new inspiring book corners.
