Avonmouth Library

Every Friday classes take it in turn to walk to the local library in Avonmouth. This gives them the opportunity to be able to access books that we do not have in school and develop their love of reading outside of the school setting. We hope that they will then contiune to use the library with their families and enjoy reading with them.
