Author of the Month / Reading at Home

Each month we celebrate the work of an author with a special assembly, readings from their work and a display in the halls and library. Please see below the list of authors for 2017/18. We aim to expose the children to a diverse range of authors whose work they may not be familiar with. Parents are encouraged to discuss these authors with their children throughout the month and celebrate their books!


We recommend browsing through the quarterly 'Books for Keeps' magazines below, which will open your eyes to the very latest children's books which you can enjoy at home. Please see also the CLPE 'staff picks of 2017' PDF, with the best in children's books from 2017!
