 Reading

At GGA, we believe reading plays a crucial role in allowing children to access independent learning.

 

We aim to inspire children to have a love of reading, an eagerness to read to learn and the necessary skills to allow them to decode and interpret texts.

This website has a wide range of games to support reading across the curriculum

We expect children to read at home five times a week. Each year group has a rewards system to reward those children that read five times a week. This can involve reading anything – not just the child’s school reading book! Please ensure that you record this in your child's reading record/planner. This should be in school every day.

 

We also have a whole school reading rewards system. Children achieve badges when they reach 25, 50, 100 and 200 reads at home.
