Welcome To Our St Ives Infant School!

Reading Spines

Each year group has a set of books which will be the books they will have heard more than once through that year, a common bank of stories that bind us together as a community.  They will become your child's classic books that they will hopefully remember for a long time to come.  By the end of their time at St Ives Infant and Nursery your child will have learned and loved over 30 books.
*New titles added for 2023*
