We focus on learning with reading at the heart of everything we do


Reading at Rosedale


At Rosedale we aim to promote a reading culture across the school. As well as teaching children how to read we want them to enjoy reading and read for pleasure. On this page you'll see some of the things we do in school to promote reading.



READING SWAP SHOP by Grace R and Sienna


If YOU READ A BOOK AND DO NOT ENJOY THE BOOK YOU CAN COME AND SWAP IT AT OUR SWAP SHOP. HOWEVER, YOU CANNOT BRING IN INAPPROPRIATE Books. They are in Key Stage 1 hall and in Key Stage Two Shared Area. There are fantastic, brilliant books that you can enjoy. Bring in a book that you do not really like but somebody may enjoy the book who especially likes books. Even if you bring one book, you can only take one. There are books which you can get lost in them.   



World Book Day - by Shannon, Y6

On Thursday 7th of March 2019, Rosedale Primary School celebrated World Book Day. Many children came dressed as their favourite book characters. We have enjoyed a variety of activities including a hunt for Where’s Wally and a quiz about popular books. Y6 had a hunt before dinner and Y3, Y4 and Y5 had theirs during dinnertime. The prize for finding Wally was a delicious chocolate Freddo.

Eboni and Shamila in Y6 were interviewed about World Book Day.

“It’s quite fun because you get to learn new things about books and getting to dress up”. Everyone took part, we hope you enjoyed reading this article.

I have heard many amazingly good things about the books and they all sound fantastic so why don’t you have a read of your own. We have eight books that have such addictive titles.
