Reading Books

Reading Books are changed weekly; please enjoy reading with your child at home.  We ask for book bags to be in school everyday so that we can listen to the children read any day of the week. We ask you to look after the books and if books are lost or damaged you will need to pay £4.50 for a replacement. Please remember to sign your child's reading record. If the reading record becomes lost or damaged it will cost £2 for a replacement.

We love to see children reading and adults as well so if you have any pictures of your child or yourself reading in unusual places please send them in for our extreme readers display in class.
