Reading Books

Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and record a comment in their reading record. We are still waiting for the new reading records to be delivered, so please use last years until the new ones arrive.

Reading books will be changed once we see 3 comments in the records. Staff will be checking reading records daily. If your child has read then they will get a star on their reading chart. Once they reach the next stage (10, 20, 30 etc) reads, they will get a prize!

Miss Bewick will be checking reading records and counting up how many times your child has read. There will be bronze, silver and gold reading awards depending on how many times your child has read at home.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to a member of staff, we are here to support you and your child.
