New reading Initiative!
At Limes Farm Infant School and Nursery we want to celebrate your child reading at home. Our goal is to develop a pleasure for reading and motivate children so that they want to read. Reading is the most powerful tool we can give to a child. The benefits of reading are enormous. Some of these include developing vocabulary, curiosity, understanding of the world and the fun and enjoyment that stories bring. To encourage a love of reading we will be starting a new reading incentive. If your child reads at home 4 or more times a week they will be given a class raffle ticket. They can earn one ticket every week. The more tickets they have in the raffle the more chance they have of winning. At the end of each half term every class will pull out 2 raffle winners. These children will both receive a brand new book to enjoy reading.
To show that your child is reading at home you can complete and return the reading record sheets that are sent home on a Monday with your child’s book or use class Dojo (Year 1 and 2) or Tapestry (Reception) to share your child’s reading.
The reading of any book or magazine is celebrated; this does not only have to be the book they receive from school. The most important thing is that reading is fun and enjoyable!
