At Alexander First School, we think reading is extremely important so, every week, we give out stickers to children who have read 5 times in the week.  In addition, an end of term prize is given to children who have read 20 times.


Reading can be anything, not just a school book:


  • comics
  • newspaper
  • ebooks
  • websites
  • stories
  • poems
  • information books...


Reading for just 10 minutes a day makes a HUGE difference to a child's fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, memory, knowledge of the world and more! Reading also helps children become a good writer.


So... read in bed, read on the beach, read in the garden, read alone, read to each other!


Note down your daily reading in your Reading Record so your good work counts towards the school reward.
