Summer Reading Challenge
School paired up with the local library service to encourage reading.
The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. Participants sign up at a local library, and then read six library books of choice to complete the Challenge. We are thrilled that so many of you took part in this great scheme and were reading throughout the summer. A special certificate from Brook Field School will be given to these children and they will be celebrated in an assembly too! Well done to you all!
StoryTime Phonics is a fully immersive classroom experience for Early Years & KS1 children that teaches phonics following the Letters & Sounds Framework. It is the antidote to dry phonics learning.
Proven to enhance your phonics screening results, this scheme uses online editable resources & well known, popular children’s fiction books to contextualise the sounds that children are learning. Children are immersed in an interactive, multi-sensory experience through the use of storytelling and props, encouraging the parallel development of comprehension and phonics skills
Scheme has been purchased for each KS1 class
Pupil Council are asked for book suggestions for each class
On author days, a book from the author is given as a prize for the competition.
