Curriculum and Ethos Categories


We are passionate about reading and children’s literature at Eleanor Palmer! Every day ends with a whole class story and all our children have a reading lesson every day. As parents it is vital that you establish a reading culture at home too and make time for that all important bedtime story. All the years of research tells us that the children who do best in education have had a good foundation in talk and literature at home before the age of 5.

Children get better at reading… by reading and by being read and chatted to! We know however that it is hard to select from the thousands of children’s books and so we are here to help. We created our own Eleanor Palmer booklet of book recommendations for children, every last one tried and tested by our staff and children. If you’ve mislaid your paper copy click below to see a copy! Also included are the slides that we presented on our Reading Open Morning including links to other useful websites!

Do please find a teacher if there’s anything you’d like to discuss about reading!
