Infant Reading Scheme

Thank you to all of the infant parents who have been patient whilst we have been updating our infant reading scheme. It has taken a while to sort out the old books and establish how many new books we needed to order. We have a mixture of reading scheme books e.g. Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Bug Club etc. as well as a range of ‘real’ books. The books in the scheme have now been book banded. Information about book bands can be found on the website below.

Over the summer holidays please encourage your children to read for their own enjoyment (see previous post about The Big Friendly Read).

Big Friendly Read, Summer Reading Challenge 2016

 

Last week the children took home a leaflet about The Big Friendly Read.

The summer reading challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, then read six library books of your choice to complete the challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s FREE to take part! Just contact your local library. Visit the link below to find out which libraries are participating!

The Summer Reading Challenge website helps you keep track of your reading all year round: find new books to read, take part in competitions and play games.

There are also a variety of other activities being held at local libraries during the school holidays. Sutton Central library offers play dough for nursery age children, phonics club for reception age children and Summer journal writing for older children. Pick up a leaflet at the library for a detailed list of events happening over the summer holidays.
