A Hampstead school has created a “book hut” on its roof to develop pupils’ love for reading.
New End Primary School has set up a new small space with views overlooking London that is filled with books.
Children can take a book home, get absorbed in a story as they hone their passion for reading, and then return it for others to enjoy.
The books are donated by parents and growing in number as part of the school’s drive to encourage children to read.
New End headteacher Karyn Ray said: “Reading is vital for all children and this is another way to generate our pupils’ enthusiasm and interest in reading.

“It will help lay a solid foundation for their future education and be a great source of pleasure for the rest of their lives.”
To coincide with the opening of the book hut, New End took a delivery of 10 copies of Wizard in my Shed by Simon Farnaby, which pupils have been tasked with reviewing.
