There are a number of websites that can help your child to improve their reading. Below are some links to ones that we have found useful. Please let us know if you have come across any more that you think others might like!
Home/ School Reading Diary
We have launched our new reading diary this term - don't forget to listen to your children read on a regular basis. Take a look inside the diary, there are lots of ideas for questions to ask. Your child will also be able to tell you what level they are working towards, so use these questions to challenge and extend learning.
We are launching a reading challenge this term. Your children will have the opportunity to become a bronze, silver or gold reader and be the proud owner of reading medals. The medals were designed by our children and have been made into fantastic badges. Here are the winning entries.
Bronze Reader designed by Emily Holmes Year 3
Silver Reader designed by Chelsea Holmes Year 5
Gold Reader designed by Elisha Emmett Year 5
Children can wear their badges with pride as they will have worked hard to achieve them.

This term, our theme is 'Tell me a Story'. Your children are learning a great deal about themselves, their environment and the wider world.
Early Years children are learning all about themselves and their families.
Year 2 and Year 4 are learning about the wider world - Year 2 are enjoying a party theme and will plan a big party and parade. Year 4 are rainforest investigators - some very extraordinary creatures have been made.
Year 4 also have a residential to Nell Bank on 18th October - lucky them!
Year 3 are local detectives, the experts on Buttershaw and Bradford.
Year 5 and 6 are historians, learning about the Victorians. Nicholas Nickleby came to visit last week!
All our work will be showcased in December for our Global Showcase week. Your children enjoy showing their work to you and you can even come and take part in some activities. Look at our calendar for the dates.
Autumn is a busy term for lots of our traditional events - Halloween, Bonfire Night and of course Christmas performances. We will look forward to seeing you at these.
