Linacre Primary School

Learning   Progress   Success


At Linacre we All love to read!


Here at Linacre all children have lots of opportunities to read.  This can be by themselves, to an adult or listen to someone else read to them.


Parents/Carers - Every Friday morning, 8.45-9.00am, you are invited into school to share a book with your child.


All children will hear a story at the end of every day for 15 minutes.  This will be read by the class teacher or in the form of an audio book.


Each week all children and adults in school participate in 'RnR'. Ask your child about it.


Your child has access to good quality books in our school libraries and book corners in every class.


We have Beanstalk reading support volunteers working with some of our children on a weekly basis.


Have a look at the top 100 books to read before the end of Primary School. We recommend that all children should aim to read 4 novels a month.


Please read each night with your child and record it in their reading records 3 times a week. It will really help them to progress in all curriculum areas.
