The Busters Book Club is a inter-school reading competition between classes, to promote the enjoyment of reading at home. 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.
As your child moves through the school their reading target will grow. In Reception and Year One they should aim to read (or share a book) for 10 minutes per day. In Years 2 and 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.
