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.

          Spring 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. During Spring term, we are challenging children to read 5 times each week. Prizes will be awarded to children who complete 10 out of the 12 weeks. Diaries will be checked and stamped each week and prizes will be given out during the last week before Easter (week beginning 4th April). Please click here to view this term’s reading challenge.

In the end of afternoon on World Book Day 2022, all the children buddied up with a child from another class to share and enjoy reading together.

 

Listening to stories in EYFS and KS1

Today we listened to a story about an adventure in a hot air balloon. The story was on the radio so we couldn’t see any pictures. We lay back and closed our eyes to help us create an image in our heads of what we were listening to. After the story we talked about the words we heard that described how the balloon moved and the things the passengers spotted during the journey.  We all really enjoyed it and it was very relaxing!

        World Book Day 2021

Although we couldn’t all be together for World Book Day this year, we have loved seeing what you all got up to! It was great to see children learning in school and remotely getting in to character to celebrate World Book Day.
