It is important that all children continue to read to and discuss texts with an adult on a regular basis. Children should read for at least fifteen minutes every night. Reading records must be signed by an adult to confirm that daily reading has been done. This should include the name of the book and the number of pages read.
Recently, we have introduced a new accelerated reader programme which encourages children to engage with a wide variety of texts from the library. Children will then have the opportunity to answer mini quizzes based on these books, allowing them to further develop comprehension skills and understanding.
