We believe the teaching of reading is greatly helped if there is strong communication between parents and teachers. From Early Years the children take home a book banded reading book, which will be suitable for the child’s reading ability to read at home and in school during individual reading time.
At the beginning of every year all children receive a new reading passport. Throughout the year they can collect stickers on the back of their reading passport as they complete their reading. When all the stickers have been collected the child gets a prize in assembly so it is a public celebration of reading. During the year they can complete three passports and get different prizes for each passport.
Passport 1 – Pencil Passport 2 – Book Passport 3 – Book/CD
Each class teacher will monitor the coloured reading record sheets to track the child’s reading at home.
