Once again we are taking part in a national reading competition called Read for My School, which is open to all children in years 3 – 8 in England from 19th January to 20th March 2015.
The competition website is hosting a free online library of over 100 books by top children’s authors. If they participate then your child will be able to read those books online wherever they have internet access.
New for 2015 the programme is fully compatible with most major tablets including iPad and Kindle! . Children can of course also choose to read books in print or that are not part of the online library – the goal is simply to read as much as possible this term.
There will be a rolling schedule of prize draws for individual children and whole schools who are doing well. What’s more major awards and prizes are available to be won by schools that can demonstrate wider success in nurturing positive attitudes towards reading.
Parents - Any encouragement that you can give to your child that supports them as they try to read a little more this term would be invaluable, whatever form it may take. If they do participate in Read for My School fully then your child will reap benefits for themselves as well as for our school.
