ReadingImage result for children reading with parents


We encourage you to read at least once a week with your children. It will benefit their learning positively if you are able to read with them for 10 minutes each day.


Once the children have finished their books they should return them to school so we can give them a new book.


The children receive prizes in assembly for every 6 books they read.
