Class Novel

In Sapling Class we are reading ...


Books we have read:


Daily Reading

In Reception the expectation is that you are reading for 3 days or more a week for at least 10 minutes.

Little Wandle books will be read 3 times in school before they are sent home. Our reading days are Wednesday, Thursday ,and Friday. All books will be swapped on Friday so the children have a chance to read with you.

In addition to this, children will be able to choose an age appropriate text for them to take home weekly. Please ask if you're unsure.

Your reading habits are monitored weekly. Children in Reception have the opportunity to achieve reading awards in relation to how many times they have read. 

25 Reads = Bronze
50 Reads = Silver
75 Reads = Gold
100 Reads = Platinum

Note: Only one read per day is counted toward their reward.
