Home school reading
This academic year, we have simplified how we will be monitoring reading at home. Your child will have their own Loughton School reading journals titled, ‘A Record of my Reading.’ These journals will look slightly different in years 3 and 4 than they will in years 5 and 6. Each time your child reads at home 4 times a week or more they will earn a raffle ticket in the class jar. These reading journals are moving to an electronic way of recording. Please look at the 'reading raffle tickets' tab on the right hand side of this page for more information about this.
Please continue to encourage your child with reading at home. Each term, your child will be given a copy of our termly reading challenges (these are downloadable below) to complete. For each challenge they take part in, they will earn an additional reading raffle ticket. This year we have also launched our bi-monthly family read challenges to get the whole family involved in promoting a love of reading. Please see the 'family read challenges' tab on the right hand side of this page for more information.
If you have any questions, please speak with your child’s class teacher in the first instance or see one of our reading champions.
Parents’ reading evening
Helping your child to read and understand the text can be challenging. As parents, you are your child's most influential teacher with an important part to play in helping your child to learn to read and then to carry on that love of reading for life! If you have any questions about reading please speak with your child’s class teacher in the first instance.
Our 2019-20 reading parents' workshop was held on 27th November.
