Leighton Primary School

Readers of the Month

As a school we are promoting the love of reading with all of our children. We encourage the children to choose books independently that they can become immersed in to enhance their imagination and books that can develop their knowledge and understanding of the world.
The teachers portray their reading interests to the children and will discuss and share the books that they enjoy reading at home as well.
Parents are really supportive of our reading for pleasure focus and our reading cafes and reading events are always well attended. Parents give very positive feedback at after each event as well. 
Each month the teachers all choose a child in their class that has shown a particular interest  and passion for reading both at home and school and where the impact has been evident in all areas across the curriculum. 

The winners are announced in our whole school celebration assembly and the children each receive a certificate.

The children also get to choose a book that they order with Mr Saull and can then add one more reading book to their collection.
