We are working towards a silver level reading award
This year as a school we are working towards a silver level reading award through ‘One education’. This award focuses on decoding, understanding and reading for enjoyment.
Reading is taught well at School but as part of our journey from Good to Outstanding we wanted to be the best we could be and inspire all our children to be life- long readers. Reading inspires writing, imagination and is an essential skill needed for life.
What can parents do to help?
Reading for enjoyment starts at home and we are asking parents to continue sharing stories, asking questions about what their child is reading and encouraging a variety of text types eg magazines, annuals, factual books and narrative. This reading award will be evaluated and judged in November 2017.
