New Whole-school Reading Reward System

You may well have heard from your child about our new reading reward system that we have just started in school


The reasons we are exploring this is that we have noticed a significant drop-off in engagement in reading outside of school over the last few years – which is something that has been noticed across the whole country – and it is something which is seeming to have a noticeable impact on comprehension skills (both reading and generally).Talking to children, we found that this mainly seems to not being in the regular habit of picking up a book to read – and that most actually enjoyed reading once they did.


The way our new reward system works is that every time a child reads at home (shown by reading records entries in KS1 and a filled-in “reading ticket” in KS2) they will be given a raffle ticket. Each week on a Thursday celebration assembly, we will have a raffle ticket draw – where the winning ticket/child will get to choose a brand new book from collection of recently purchased books on the following Friday.

With this week’s celebration assembly having to be cancelled due to the Scorpions’ and Bees’ Viking experience day, we did the first of these on Friday’s normal assembly, and our first winner was Grace in Dragonflies!
