Shared Vison for Reading
At Street lane Primary School, it is our intent to provide our children with a high-quality education in English which enables them to successfully read and comprehend a wide range of texts. We want our pupils to develop a love of reading and to be able to understand more about the world in which they live through the knowledge they gain from texts.
Autumn Reading Challenge
Each term, we will be setting a new reading challenge for children to take part in. Your child’s challenge sheet can be found in their reading diaries. We are challenging the children to complete 15 of these activities during Autumn 1 and 2 (1 for each week). There are 20 different reading activities to choose from. Diaries will be checked and stamped each week and prizes will be given out during the last week before Christmas(week beginning 13th December). Please click here to view this term’s reading challenge.
