Reading in school
Reading in School
We all understand the importance of encouraging your children to read as much as they can when they can and where they can. In school, we work hard to provide as many opportunities to not only read to learn, but also to trigger curiosity, and that love of escaping to a new world.
Each day we share new words and reflect on the impact of them. We would very much like to continue to grow this exploration, and hopefully, one day a love of reading in as many different ways as possible. We cannot make your child have a passion for reading, but we can all work together to provide as many reasons to read as we can!
We share what we do via the website, Twitter and of course via the children. Please know you are always welcome to be part of the journey.
If you would like to be involved …
Please contact Becci in the office should you wish to hear readers in the mornings. For our current parent readers, we would like to welcome you back straight after half-term.
If you would like to come in and share a story with your child’s class, please let Mrs Grinyer know.

World Book Day and a Book Exchange
I also thank you ahead of time as World Book Day is looming! I will send more information nearer the time, but do know we will be dressing up as book character. On the day, we will also be doing a book exchange. A few parents have already donated books that their children have outgrown - a huge thank you! If you are having a spring clean and have any books that you would like to donate to the school, please drop them to the office during the week beginning 14th February.
All we ask is that they are of good quality as each child, on World Book Day, will have the chance to choose a book to keep.
Website and Parent Zooms
For any information about reading, writing or spelling, please look at the curriculum section in our school website. Please also know that I will run some live Zoom sessions for any questions you might like answered. (a first meeting date was shared via survey yesterday (Thursday 3rd February). This first English session will be on Tuesday 8th February at 2pm.
Thank you for your continued support at home. If you have any questions, please do contact either your child’s class teacher or me at any point.
