Welcome back to our first reading page of the academic year. Whether your child hasn’t been able to put a book down during lockdown and the summer, or if you have struggled to get them to pick a book up…this space is for you!
For those parents new to the school, this is a page published to keep you up to date with the schools reading initiatives, important dates and general information about reading. It’s a chance to find out about new, high quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry as well as a chance to get tips and up to date information about helping your child with their reading journey.
