Reading

At Plaistow Hill we love to read! Each day the children take home two books to share. One book is taken from a wide selection of colour banded books from reading schemes such as Oxford Reading Tree, with a second book selected from our wonderful library. 

We really value the importance of reading at home and we encourage all of our children to share as many books at home as they can. This can be reading to someone, reading with someone or having someone read to them.  Any time they can share some reading, whether they are reading or being read to is so important.  And don't forget, reading doesn't just have to be a story! It can be leaflets, signs, recipes, anything that encourages reading!

At Plaistow Hill we celebrate the reading of all of our children.  If the children read at least 3 times in a week for 10, 20 and then 30 weeks, they receive a special bronze, silver or gold badge in assembly which they can then wear on their school jumpers to show they have been working hard on their reading.

In addition to all of this we have strong links with our local library and take part in reading challenges throughout the school year.
