What an amazing year in reading we have had so far! Promoting reading from Owl Babies to Year 6 has been a top priority.
From launching reading assemblies and reading passports to creating inviting book corners in our classrooms, we have all worked hard to show that Rye Oak is a school that loves reading!
We’re not done yet! We would still like to make this our best year of reading ever.
This year, thanks to the efforts of the children, staff and parents, we have raised a total of £2,956.54!
The current Book Fair and second hand sale raised an additional £360.
All money raised will be used to buy brand new books for the school.
Are you the most adventurous reading family in the school? Do you drop everything and read?
Take a photograph of the most unusual place you have stopped to read to be displayed on our reading hall of fame. The most adventurous reading photo will be made into a photo canvas to be displayed in the school!
To continue to make reading an adventure, in the spring we launched our reading passports. The children have a whole half term to complete the eight tasks set by their teacher. If they complete three they receive a bronze award, five equals and silver award and all eight means a gold award!
Do you have a little spare time? Would you like to come and support our children to become better readers?
We are looking for a group of volunteers to come into school and read with the children on a regular basis. If you have half an hour to spare and would like to hear some children read, please speak to your child’s class teacher or a senior member of staff.
The whole school theme for the second half of summer term is ‘Circus’.
We would like each year group to have a core text linked to this theme.
To recommend a book, please put your suggestions in the box in the school office.
We have also held a number of reading workshops this year. Links from the workshops can be found below.
