Reading is very important to us here at Endeavour Academy. We aspire for all of our children to be live long readers and learners.
This page will contain news of any book based activities in school such as World Book Day, Poetry Day as well as recommendations, advice for getting the best out of reading, reading awards achieved throughout school, special offers and all things book related.
Please check regularly for latest information.
Each month we will have a different subject focus to encourage children to read different books. This month the focus is maths.

You can also download a Guide to Book Chat to share.
