At Cypress Primary School, our ‘Reading Tree’ rewards celebrate children who read regularly. In KS1 and KS2, children receive a special bookmark if they have recorded daily or regular reading in their Reading Diaries – scan the QR code to hear a special story! These children are then entered into a raffle where they could win a brand new book! The class with the most recorded regular readers in each year group then has either a bedtime pyjama afternoon (KS1) or a reading cafe (KS2).
Our children were very excited this morning as they filed into the assembly hall. It was great to see so many children earning themselves a bookmark for daily reading this term.
Children who won a special book prize at Upper School: Aisha (Holly), Malaika (Willow), Lily-Mathilde (Lime), Leo S (Cedar), Leo G (Birch), Lenae (Oak), Mohamed (Beech), Sophia (Larch), Sayo (Rowan), Tosca (Hawthorn), Maggie (Sycamore) and Lea (Hazel). Children who won a special book prize at the Lower School: Elbie, Jamie, Antonio, Ellie, Kane, Leon, Louis, Luna, Louis, Sebastian, Kobi and Lily.
Well done to you all – keep up the consistent, daily reading! Enjoy your books!
Congratulations to this term’s winning classes: Indigo class (Yr1), Turquoise class (Yr2), Birch class (Yr3), Hawthorn (Yr4), Sycamore (Yr5) and Larch (Yr6) – enjoy your special reading afternoons!
Don’t worry if you didn’t earn a bookmark this term, Reading Rewards restart every term. With some consistency and dedication you could earn yourself a bookmark, book prize and or a PJ/ reading cafe for your class!
Daily reading is so important, not only for developing children’s skills but also for their emotional health and wellbeing. Thank you for your continued home support with reading, which really does make all the difference!
