READING AT HOME


 Please read to a grown up every day and ask them to sign your book. Talk about what you like and dislike about the books you read, what your opinions are about the characters and events and make predictions about what you think will happen next. 

Remember to put a token on your reading chart each morning to show that you have read at home. 

If you read 35 times this half term you will be in with a chance of winning some Saves!

 

 

Let's see if we can win the reading trophy this week!
