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!

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.
