Tudor Primary School

Reading

Few quotes from the students regarding reading;

  • The books were chosen by reading the blurbs and looking at the front covers. 
  • Reading is important because it expands your vocabulary, writing and they understand the story better.   Any unfamiliar words the students either use a dictionary or ask an adult.  
  • Reading also allows the students to experience new things.
  • Some say reading is important, it improves your career prospects.
  • Reading at home, comprehension lessons and whole class reading has made them the readers they are today and can better understand the contents of the book

 

Here are a list of some of our favourite sites for you to enjoy reading or listening to with your children at home.

 

As you know we did a survey of Reading habits and choices in January 2017 as we are very interested in getting your views about Reading at school and home.
 
It was fantastic to know that all of you enjoyed reading and were able to say how important it was because it helps you in absolutely everything! You were able to tell me that most of you visit the local library regularly and that you enjoy the books that you take home to read too. 
 
Some of you wanted more opportunities to read to someone at school and we have listened to that. After half term we are setting up reading buddy classes, you'll be able to help younger children read and be able to read to a reading buddy at school too.
 
Other suggestions that you made about reading in school-
•    You’d like a fun reading club, perhaps with comics, internet reading material, info-graphic books, magazines and puppets.
•    Have a 'reader of the week' certificate in assembly.
We are going to set up an outdoor reading space especially for KS2 by summer 2017. We will be opening that area at playtimes and lunchtimes so that you can read with friends in a special dedicated and calm reading space. We will be buying lots of new and exciting books for you to read now that we know you really enjoy reading magazines, funny stories, poems, comics and plays.
 
We will be looking out for 'reading champions' to organise an inter school reading competition and a poem writing competition about a favourite book. 
These exciting suggestions are happening because of your feedback to the reading survey so thank you very much for completing it, we enjoyed reading every single one of the replies.

On the subject of reading I hope you are reading lots of books to raise money for less fortunate children in hospitals. The Readathon will end on the first day back in the summer term-we will then ask you to bring in your sponsor money and there will be a prize for the person who has read the most books, so keep reading and raising money!

Everybody reads - even our local MP Mr Sharma and our governors find time to dip into a book. What do you enjoy reading?
