Beanfield Primary School

Author of the Month

In Key Stage 2 we have introduced the Author of the Month programme.  We have selected 12 authors whose work we feel children should have the opportunity to enjoy as their love of reading develops alongside their reading independence.  

For one term, each class will focus on a particular author and in our class libraries we have placed a large selection of that author's work for children to choose to read for pleasure.  

The authors are:
