Here at Booth Wood Primary School, we believe that reading is one of the most powerful tools of learning both in and out of school. Reading:
· exercises our brain;
· improves concentration;
· teaches children about the world around them;
· improves vocabulary and language skills;
· develops a child’s imagination;
· help children achieve better in school.
We are always looking for ways to encourage children to read for pleasure, and our reading awards system has proven to get children passionate about reading.
The aim of the reading awards is to complete all three bookmarks- bronze, silver and gold. Each bookmark has a number of boxes for you to sign off when your child has read a book. As children in Key Stage 2 read bigger chapter books they have less boxes to fill. Each time your child completes a bookmark, they are to hand it to their class teacher who will give them a small prize and their next silver or gold bookmark. When they reach gold, they get a certificate, mention on the website, prize and leaf hung on our special ‘Golden Reading Tree’.
We hope your child(ren) enjoy the competition!
