Home Reading Scheme


The new school year sees the launch of our new 'Home Reading Scheme'.  At Pear Tree Infant and Walbrook Nursery School we are passionate about our parent partnership and we have developed a reward scheme for children who read at home.  Over each term, children will receive a reading reward card, if they read at home and bring their book back to exchange on a Friday they will receive a stamp on their card.  Once they have received 12 stamps they will receive a token and be able to choose a book from our new 'Book Vending Machine'!


We encourage children and parents to read together at home, this can provide a unique bonding experience as well as contributing to the development of listening skills, spelling, comprehension and vocabulary.  Reading with your child at home will foster a genuine love of reading and  parents can establish themselves as reading role models with daily practice at home.

Book Vending Machine

We have a new addition to the school this year - we have a book vending machine! This is being launched with our new home reading scheme - please take a look at this page more information and click on the 'Reading - Parents Information Meeting' to view the presentation that Mrs. Morgan delivered to parents at the beginning of the school year that is launching our new initiative.

World Book Day



At Walbrook Nursery and Pear Tree Infant school we are passionate about giving your children enriched reading experiences.  Each year we celebrate World Book Day with exciting activities planned throughout the day for the children.


This year, each year group based their learning around a given book.  Please click on the following link for photographs of the enriching experiences the children have taken part in.

We love to read!

As a school community we are passionate about reading for pleasure and instilling children with a love of books. Both within the Nursery and Infant setting we host a range of events to support our children and families with fostering a love of books and reading.

Our School Library


We are proud of our school library. This is a dedicated space in both our Nursery and Infant setting which allows children a calm, purposeful and inviting place in which they can fully embrace the world of stories and books. 

Our children's love of reading shines through during their visits to our school library

Reading Den


We have transformed a space in our school into a 'Reading Den'.  This has given the children a cosy and inviting environment, fostering a love of reading!

Reading Buddies


Our reading buddies support your child's understanding of what they are reading.  The buddies enable children to link their experiences to their books, and are intrinsically linked to their learning. The buddies also provide prompts for reading - enabling children to question the texts and make predictions about what will happen next.  Ask your children if they know who these characters are and how they help them to read at school!
