Reading Books

Due to COVID 19 guidance we have to allow the books 72 hours to quarantine before giving new books out. Please only return your child’s book bag on a Friday! 

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal. 

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.
