Reading Challenge Term 3

On Monday 9th January, we will be launching a new reading challenge for this term.

Pupils will need to read to an adult at least three times a week to complete the challenge on time.

Please make sure you sign your child(ren)’s reading record book so that we can keep track of who is reading at home.

The children do not need to read a whole book every time they read to you. Reading a few pages at a time is enough, as long as they discuss their understanding of the text with you, as this is a vital part of their reading development.

Pupils will need to reach the following milestones by:

23/01 for Bronze

30/01 for Silver

06/02 for Gold

Pupils who have reached Gold on time will receive a reward, chosen by the children, during the last week of term.
