We are writing to inform you of our school reading incentive initiative called ‘St Bartholomew’s Rainbow Reading Challenge’.
As you may already know, we encourage the children to read at least 3 times a week at home, with a grown up, and we ask that you use the school reading record book to keep as a diary of their reading. Initially this may be an adult sharing a book which a child has chosen and comments may include the conversation shared about any new vocabulary or thoughts on the story, characters or setting. As knowledge of letters and sounds increases, individual reading books will be sent home.
100 reads – orange certificate (reading star eraser)
150 reads – yellow certificate (yellow wristband: 150 reads! #soar)
200 reads –green certificate (bookmark)
250 reads – blue certificate (presented with an age appropriate book)
300 reads – purple certificate (children’s name entered into a raffle to win a £20 reading book voucher)
Thank you in anticipation of your support. We look forward to sharing in your child’s success throughout the year.
Mrs Gibbens and Mrs Stammers
We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child as you start your journey at St Bartholomew’s.
We will be having PE on Wednesdays so your child will need to wear their PE kit including daps/trainers to school every Wednesday.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in contact:
