Reading at home and reading competitions
Reading is a fundamental skill and allows your child to access the whole of the year 1 curriculum. Children must read to an adult for a minimum of 5 minutes every day. We also ask that they are read to by an adult for a minimum of 5 minutes every day. To encourage regular reading, we will hold weekly prize draws for those children that have read at home. Each time a child reads at home, along with a parental comment, we will give them a raffle ticket, which will enter them into a weekly prize draw. We will also have a ‘reader of the week’, which will give one lucky child the chance to read to the class!
