We strongly believe that reading for pleasure is key to the success of our children and do all we can to encourage this. We have a busy and creative Library - please see our separate page for all the fun and exciting events and information.
We ask that parents read regularly with their children at home - ideally every night - to share a love of reading and build on the skills that children are learning in school. All of our children have a reading book that is matched to their phonics phase or reading ability and a book they have chosen to share with their family at home - either from the Library or their class reading corner.
We have a half termly Reading Reward for our Superstar readers - children that read regularly and/or access our Library frequently.
Recent rewards have been:

Summer 1 2019 - an afternoon at our local astroturf Pulse - playing games, using the parachute and 5-a-side football
