In addition to reading throughout the school day, the value of reading at home cannot be underestimated and is noted as vital in building our pupils’ vocabulary, love of reading and future aspirations.

Reading at home can take shape in a variety of ways:

•    Bedtime stories
•    Audiobooks
•    Turning on the subtitles
•    ePlatform
•    Reading Eggs
•    Going to the local library
•    Reading in the local environment 
•    Reading to a relative over the phone or via zoom

Pupils will bring reading books home weekly for them to read and return. Pupils will bring two books home - one that is chosen from the reading scheme to help them developmentally with reading and one they have chosen to read for pleasure. Books will come home daily and are expected to be in school daily. Reading diaries will be checked weekly by the class teacher. 

As reading is at the heart of our learning and curriculum, we have introduced a reading reward scheme! Please support your child by continuing to include reading entries in your child’s reading diary for all forms of home reading.
