Reading Jars
by James Wakeland (Staff) - Monday, 9 October 2017, 10:39 AM


As part of our plan to improve reading across school we have launched a whole school initiative evolving around reading raffle jars.

Each class has a reading raffle jar and the aim is to fill the jar as a class with raffle tickets. If a child reads at home three times in a week, they receive a raffle ticket and if they read six times in a week, they receive two raffle tickets and so on.  All reading will need to be recorded in their reading record books so we can reward the children with their raffle tickets.

Each class jar is divided into three sections – once the class has met each section they receive a class reward.

Every class has decided on three rewards they will receive for recording their reading they may include a non-uniform day, picnic in the park, film afternoon or games afternoon.

To encourage our children to read at home they can read not only their home reading book but magazines, recipes, comic books, library books, reading when out at the supermarket/shopping or their own books at home. 

We are also looking for parents to help listen to children read at school too. If you are interested in helping with reading, please see Mrs. Angela.
