Reading Record BooksWe are delighted to announce an exciting new initiative that we have started with our Year 7/8 students this year.
As you will be aware, reading is an integral aspect of our students’ education and one that we value greatly across the curriculum. Having released our Enrichment Reading List earlier on in the year, we are now delighted to be in a position to encourage our KS3 students to showcase their reading ability in their new Reading Record Books. These books will allow students to summarise their reading of fictional and non-fictional texts and exercise their analysis, inference and deduction skills, necessary in preparing them for KS4 reading and writing activities.
Within their Record Books, there is also a section for students to write our Word of the Day, each day, and offer a sentence example of their own. In order for the books to be used efficiently, we would encourage students to use them frequently and recommend reading for pleasure, on a daily basis. Students should have their Reading Record Books out on their desks, during form, each morning and form tutors will be rewarding the students, who use their books most diligently, with house points each week.
We welcome your support in promoting use of your child’s new Reading Record Book at home and look forward to seeing the impact it has on their reading and writing skills as they progress at the college.
