Reading Books
 
Change to reading book system
Due to the introduction of the Accelerated Reader system, children may change their book as soon as they have finished reading it. This is their responsibility. Children have access to a range of suitable books within the classroom. Please ensure books and reading records come to school every day as children will regularly have the opportunity to read to an adult in school.
 
Please share reading with your child. Discuss what they are reading. However, if your child is reading to themselves, it is important that an adult still signs their reading record. Thank you.
