Fly Away with a Good Book
By Ellen Dutton
Ellen Dutton from Evelyn Grace Academy in London has put reading displays in different classrooms. She has made the theme relevant to the subject and it works really well! Ellen says that they are trying to create a strong reading culture in their school and also show that students who love reading generally do better in all different subjects.
I think it's a really good idea and would like to do a similar thing myself. It is a great opportunity to use display to promote the library, and reading, to subjects that rarely use the library resources. I will photocopy the covers of some of our best maths & science books to whet their appetite.
I like the open books made to look like birds in this display.
Thanks for sharing Ellen.
