Whole School Home Reading New in 2017

1/02/2017
This year we have introduced our new whole school home reading program. Every student will take home a reading folder that contains reading material that supports year level curriculum and independent reading goals. With your help, each class teacher will monitor and reward students' independent reading through our home reading program which will comprise approximately 15-30 minutes of homework each school night. 
 
When the reading folders come home, please take the time to read the information sheet and discuss the recording sheet and teacher tracking tool with your child. Your child's teacher will be able to answer any questions you have about this program. To promote home reading there is an incentive system of classroom and assembly awards built into the program, culminating in a book award when 200 'reading sessions' have been completed.  
 
Home reading is an important component of our literacy program and allows students to practise the reading strategies being developed in class while fostering good reading habits for life.
