Reading Stars

If your child reads at least 3 times a week, they are a Reading Star and are entered into a prize draw where they have the chance to win a reward!

Reading stars are a way of rewarding and encouraging parents and children to read together on a regular basis. Children love to win a prize and it really encourages and motivates them to improve their reading whilst at home.

Please read with your children every day (or at least 3 times a week) and return their signed reading record and book to school every day. If your child is choosing to do their home reading on MYON that is perfectly fine. There is a wide range of wonderful texts available tailored to their reading abilities. MYON is also monitored by the teaching team and reading stars are being recorded.

Once the children have read their school book they can complete comprehension reading tests online. They follow this link

https://ukhosted58.renlearn.co.uk/6711458    and log in. Their user id is the first letter of there first name and then the first four letters of their surname. For example Ben Smith would be BSmit. The children know their password. Once logged in they search for the book title and complete the quiz. The children are really excited about this in school so it would be nice to see them accessing this at home too. 


We are busy working on our times tables. TTRockstars is a really fun and engaging way for children to practise their times tables. Please encourage your child to access TTRockstars twice a week. Look out for class battles and challenges.


Spellings will be handed out on a Thursday and are to be practised every night using 'look, say, cover, write and check.' The children will have a spellings test every Tuesday.
