Reading remains a key priority. It is vital that your child reads for at least 20 minutes per day and records their achievements in their reading record. It is important to listen to your child read regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home. Of course, this is not always possible. 


Alongside the Accelerated Reader scheme, we also have a wider range of texts that children are free to sample as part of our Reading for Pleasure. Children are also allowed to read books from home and complete reading quizzes on these too. We challenge the children to increase their word count (taken from the words read in each book) and stretch themselves fully. The more books they read, the higher their word count is at the end of the year.

Miss Fleming, as Literacy Lead, will set each class a challenge to reach a certain word count together.
