Busters Reading Results
So far, on Wednesdays this term, Barton have read for 39925 minutes!
Keep up the good work.
We obviously want the children to read every evening but Wednesday is the day where we read for Buster. Every Thursday we will look at the bookmarks and add up the scores to see which class has come top, there's even a trophy to be won every week!
As your child moves through the school their reading target will grow. In Year 3 it is 15 minutes per day and in Years 4, 5 & 6 it is 20 minutes per day.
Your child's ability to read is critical to their educational success and the job prospects that follow when they leave school - and being a confident reader is key to this.
We appreciate your support with reading at home and hope Buster helps to motivate the children.
