Our Library

“Few pleasures, for the true reader, rival the pleasure of browsing unhurriedly among books: old books, new books, library books, other people's books, one's own books - it does not matter whose or where. Simply to be among books, glancing at one here, reading a page from one over there, enjoying them all as objects to be touched, looked at, even smelt, is a deep satisfaction. And often, very often, while browsing haphazardly, looking for nothing in particular, you pick up a volume that suddenly excites you, and you know that this one of all the others you must read. Those are great moments - and the books we come across like that are often the most memorable.” Aiden Chambers

 At Sellindge school we know how important reading is as a continuing life skill and we want to instil a love of reading in our children!  Our class libraries and school library are full of books.  All children are shown the importance of regular practice at home and each class have their own incentives to encouraged this. 


  • Each child will be told their book band which is the colour book that is suitable for their level of reading.
  • Each book has a colour sticker to signify the book band e.g. cream, dark blue, burgundy
  • Books that are also in the recommended reading list will have an additional brown sticker.
  • Poetry books will have an additional lilac sticker.
