Reading is of the upmost importance for all our children. We want children to read widely and often and to read for pleasure.
For this we provide children with a vast selection of reading materials.
In Foundation stage and Key Stage 1 your child will be given either a Read, Write Inc book, an Oxford Reading Tree or a PM book as their home reader.
In Key stage 2 children are given Oxford Reading Tree ‘Tree tops’ books as a home reader. Once children have completed the schemes they are able to choose any book they would like to read from a vast selection of books.
We are very lucky to have a beautiful library for children to use, each week they are able to choose a book to take home. We also offer a wide selection of magazines and comics for children to enjoy!
Children are able to gain awards for reading a specific number of times, all we ask is that you sign your child’s reading journal each time they read with you. This can be reading anything it does not have to be their home reader. You can sign for each page they read or each chapter is does not have to be the whole book.
If your child reads 10 times they get a bronze award
25 times for a silver award
50 times to come shopping to pick a book of their choice!
Happy Reading everyone!
