At Templars we are incredibly lucky to have not one but TWO libraries, one in each building which are well stocked with a wide range of books to encourage children to read.
The love of reading is important to us at Templars. We hold regular reading based events to encourage and support children's love of reading. Parents are invited into EYFS and KS1 every first Monday of the month to hear their children read in school.

Your child will be participating in the Accelerated Reader™ (AR™) program. The guide below is designed to answer your questions about AR. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or visit the Accelerated Reader website at www. renlearn.co.uk.
Children can access on-line reading opportunities with their Purple Mash logins.
Serial Mash is an online library of fiction books for children. Its purpose is to inspire children to read for pleasure. New books are added at the beginning of each half-term and released in a serial format to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The main library is aimed at children aged 7-11 years old but we also have some books aimed at KS1 children.
Children should click on the Serial Mash button on the Home Screen. New books are added at the start of each half-term. o Children get the KS2 books a chapter at a time.
o New chapters are released on Mondays.
o Each KS2 book is designed to last the length of the half term in which it is released.
o KS1 books have 5 chapters each.
o The back library of books is accessible at any time in a non-serialised manner so children can go back and read the books again.
In KS1 children have access to Bug club books online.
