Read all about our new Reading Rewards in the News tab

To reward all of our hard working families we have decided to start a new reading at home reward scheme and we are very excited about it!

Children who read for pleasure are likely to do significantly better at school than their peers, according to new research from the Institute of Education (IOE).

Children in F2, Y1, 2 and 3 are now being asked to:

  • Make sure they have at least three comments in their reading diary from a parent or carer each week.
  • When each a child has achieved three reads a week for ten weeks, they will be awarded their very own Teddy Bear in the Friday celebration assembly.
  • There will also be T-shirts and other accessories, for the Teddy Bears, which the children can collect when they read at least three times a week and have at least three comments in their diaries for a further ten weeks.

Children in Y4, 5 and 6 are now being asked to:

  • Make sure they have at least three comments in their reading diary from a parent or carer each week.
  • When each a child has achieved three reads a week for ten weeks, they will be awarded their very own Mellers lanyard in the Friday celebration assembly.
  • There will also be beautiful Badges, for the lanyards, which the children can collect when they read at least three times a week and have at least three comments in their diaries for a further ten weeks. 

We hope you and your children are excited about this new challenge,  we look forward to presenting your child with their very own Mellers Reader award!
