Reading

Reading is great fun!  You can visit new places and meet new people without ever leaving the comfort of your cosy chair.    Not only is it a great way to relax, but whilst you read you are learning lots of new words that you can use in your writing too!  

The Reading Raffle

Each week, we hold a reading raffle here at Gainsborough.  To win a ticket for the reading raffle is simple!  Read at least three times at home, have your diary signed by a grown up and bring it in.  Then, on Friday, you will have a ticket given to you to put into the raffle.  If your name is drawn from the raffle, you get to choose a book from the prize box.  Already we've had lots of winners!

Class of the Week for Reading

The reading ambassadors also count how many tickets each class has handed in.  From this, they award an EYFS/Key Stage 1 class and a Key Stage 2 class, the class of the week trophy for reading.
