At Barkston Ash, we are placing reading front and centre and striving to instil a love of reading for our students. Children will receive a 'reading scheme' book that will be changed regularly along with a 'free-read' from either the class or school library. Please support us in instilling a love of reading by listening to your child read regularly (10 minutes twice a week out loud) by discussing and asking questions about what they have read and sharing the books you enjoyed reading when you were their age. Even some special 1-on-1/3 time reading out loud to your child will help develop this love and passion.

Our as yet unnamed bear LOVES being read to - any photographs or videos of the bear being read to would be gratefully received either on Google Classroom or sent to the office. I'm looking forward to being able to put up lots of pictures of children reading in our reading area.

We have a subscription to Times Table Rockstars. We have been practising logging in and out of TTRs on our Chromebooks in class and, once we are confident, we will send home the login details for the site in due time. Please support your child in practising their times tables regularly as the facts appear in a number of guises and are used across the entire curriculum. Numberbots is also available and is a fun, interactive way of ensuring children's basic number facts such as number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 are fluent and rapid.
