Where Young Minds Shine
At Kirton Lindsey Primary School we will strive to read to the children regularly and
share our staff’s passion for books and stories and provide the children’s with reading
role models. Class teachers are required to read to their class for a minimum of 10
minutes three times a week. Across the school, a system of Core Story Books are
used to ensure children hear a wide and varied range of texts from both established
and new authors. Each year group have a selected bank of Core Story books chosen
to ensure a rich reading experience from Foundation Stage to Year 6.
