My Journey

The Journey Progresses

 
How's your Reading journey going so far?

In 2018 your Reading Programme will centre around individual, discussion sessions,  with the Teacher Librarian to extend and enrich your reading experience by introducing you to new titles, series authors and genres.

In Term 1, the reading focus will be on creating and maintaining a sustained, quiet reading, environment within the class. A reading activity will be introduced so that reading experiences can be shared in the class.

In Term 2, 3 & 4 the sustained reading environment will continue and a reading activity introduced.

ROAD Reading Log

 

During the year you will be required to record the books that you read in a ROAD, Reading Log. The Log is a visual record of your reading progress and will be viewed by your RE and English teachers to establish how consistently and widely you read and what your reading interests are.

Cambridge Library e-membership

As part of a new initiative to encourage students to focus on their reading, Hale School has formed an e-membership partnership with Cambridge Library.

This partnership will allow students to access a huge variety of eResources including: ebooks, emagazines, eAudiobooks plus a variety of educational databases.

While the e-membership does not allow boys to have full membership (i.e. to borrow physical items from the Library), it is a step towards enhancing greater community engagement, with the prospect, of students becoming lifelong library users.

Please fill in the details below and return asap to the Library or Teacher Librarian, to allow your child to become a Cambridge Library e-member. They will be issued with a numbered library card that they can use to access the e-Library Services.
