Race into Reading

As of today, 6th January 2016, Flamingos class are out in the lead - collectively they have read 540 times since 3rd September 2015.  Keep going Flamingos! 


Hurry up everyone - let's see if we can catch them!

Every time you write in your children's reading book that they have read to you it counts towards their Race into Reading progress.  When they have read 60 times they will receive a certificate.  They will continue to receive a certificate and/or a book when they reach 100, 160, 200, 260, 300 times etc.


Each child's score counts towards their class total.  Every year all the classes compete against each other to see how many times they can read.  Last year the whole school read 12,510 times - that's 1,894 more times than the year before.
