Reading Room

Teachers select appropriate books for pupils using the book banding system in place in St Dallan's

The Reading Room in St Dallan's houses a wide variety of books and reading resources. This room has been developed over a period of time and is one of our proudest achievements.

We operate a book banding system. All the books are colour coded within each band. Children progress through the colour bands from Primary 1 to Primary 4.

We offer a range of texts from different publishers to ensure children have access to fiction and non-fiction texts and a wide range of genres.

Teachers use this room to select books to match the reading abilities of the children in their classes and from the wide selection can choose books of particular interest or genre.
