Random Readers


What Role do Random Readers Play in School?

The Random Readers, named by the original group back in 2012, are the guardians of our lovely library, promotors of our school’s love for reading and kept busy by Miss Laithwaite and Mrs Asghar when it comes to World Book Day, Readathon, Book Fair Week and anything and everything else to do with reading.

What do they do?

They officially meet every Wednesday afternoon during assembly time, but unofficially keep an eye on the library every day to keep it in fine fettle to ensure our voracious readers are supplied with reading matter, be it fiction or non-fiction.

There is a Random Reader from every KS2 class. They are chosen for their passion for reading and ability to battle successfully with the Dewey Decimal system. Reading is not just a hobby, it’s a life changing experience!
