Welcome back to the new Spring Term 2022. Watch this space for news and updates from Orchards Junior School


Our school library is filled with a variety of books from different genres. We are keen to see our children develop a ‘love of reading’ that will further support their development in all aspects of the curriculum.

We are starting a new reading scheme in school called Accelerated Reader that will see the children read targeted books based on ability that they can quiz on when complete to assess their comprehension. We are confident this will help every child to improve their ability in reading.

To aid the support of reading at home, we are delighted to also offer myON – an online library of ebooks and articles that the children read and also quiz on! For more information on myON, please follow the link below:

Scholastic Book Fair

During various points in the year we will welcome the Scholastic Book Fair to our library! This is an opportunity for children and parents to explore their selection and make any purchases that they would wish to. The children will be given a ‘browsing’ opportunity during the school day but can then make purchases after the school day has finished. For more information please see the Scholastic website below :
