Celebrating Reading and Authors

At St. Patrick's, we believe in a text rich English curriculum, in which children encounter authors who they will love all of their lives.  To help them on this journey, each class has a dedicated class author who they develop a relationship with throughout the year.  They listen to their books, reading for pleasure, find out about their lives an what inspired they to become authors and learn about how their books came to be illustrated, published and loved over time!  See the photo show below for a little taster of the authors who we learn to love at St. Patrick's.  For more details, visit our class pages and select the reading icon, where you find out more about how learn to love reading in our school.

We have a dedicated calendar to celebrate reading events and we also follow the book awards so that we can find out more about up and coming authors and their work!
