Reading for Pleasure

It is important that we provide our young people with opportunities to read regularly and that they are supported in finding texts they are interested in.

Staff at TEMA dedicate time to discussing the benefits of reading with our students, for example, reading helps you to develop your vocabulary knowledge and your empathy. Reading also helps you to relax and it is proven to reduce stress.

If you are stuck with which books to borrow from the library or purchase for your child, follow the links on this page for a range of suggestions and recommendations.

You’ll also find student reviews of books that we have in school in the gallery below (or via the ‘TEMA Reads Book Recommendations’ link above).
