Children each have their own reading book and Home-School contact book where reading at home should be recorded. We ask that all children read at least 3 times a week at home. Please read books and magazines and don't restrict the Home-School contact book to simply recording their school book. We want you to read books that you simply love!
The school operates an Award Scheme for Reading at Home. The amount of times that you read at home is recorded by the class teacher weekly and is added up at the end of each term! The first award is for reading 30 times at home... Are you going to challenge yourself to achieve the Diamond award for reading 100+ times?
