Blast into reading!

Our ‘Blast into Reading’ strategy encourages children to read five times a week at home, in line with the rest of the school.

Reading at home supports the teaching of reading in school.

Reading at home may include:

* reading their school reading book

* reading their library book

* reading their high frequency words

* sharing a bedtime story

* reading street / road signs, labels in shops – any words and letters in the environment!

Share a story

Each Monday at 2.45 pm we invite parents/carers and grandparents in to ‘Share a story’ with the children. Please pop along if you are free – it is a great way to instil a love of reading in some our youngest children. Tea and coffee is served.

Great books to read!

Please see the gallery of images of recommended reads for children in Reception (taken from Pie Corbett’s Reading Spine).

Your child will have the opportunity to bring each of these books home, along with a story sack to read and share with an adult.
