Reading Trophies

18th October 2021
We are very keen that our children read LOTS at school, and also at home. All research points to the fact that children who read and are read to, make better progress in all school subjects. Research also tells us that it makes children happier, and it is a very pleasurable activity to build in to your bedtime routine. To have a bedtime story is one of life's little pleasures. Even if it is only 5 minutes, it is such a lovely end to the day.
Early Years and Key Stage 1
We ask that you support the reading the children do in school, by ensuring that in Early Years and Key Stage 1, the children also read at home, at least 5 times per week. We would like you to record that they have done this by writing in their Reading Diaries. On a Friday, the staff count up each child's reads. If they have got 5 or more, they get a special sticker in their diary.
Last week the class with the most children achieving their 5 reads was Class 4. Very well done.  Here they are with their trophy!
Key Stage 2

Here is  this week’s amazing KS2 results table. There has been a wonderful amount of home engagement from many of our children and all classes have exceeded the 30 minute target. Special mention to classes 10 and 13, who have retained their position as the leaders for another week! 

We also have some children creeping nearer to the 1,000,000 word mark so I’m sure we will have our first ‘word millionaires’ early in Autumn 2! We will remind children to make sure they have enough books to occupy them over the half-term break .
