At Spilsby Primary Academy we value reading as a key life skill and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong readers. We aim to develop a love of reading and books through our whole-class reading approach. We believe that reading is key for academic success and progress in all areas of the curriculum; therefore, we provide our pupils with the comprehension skills to respond to wide range of different text types.
Reading is vital to everything we do at Spilsby Primary and we are delighted to be part of the Book Pen Pals scheme. Every year, we are teamed up with an author/illustrator who send us book recommendations via postcards. The recommendations are a classic, a less well-known book you know and love, a brand-new release, or anything in between. We also get to send postcards back to our author/illustrator.
This year we have been receiving recommendations from: Emma Perry.
