|“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 the classes have incentives to encourage this including Reader of the Week which is published in our weekly newsletter.
