Reading books - Our book changing procedures are as follows:

 

  • Children will select books from their bubbles stock which will be stored in the bubble classrooms.
  • When the child returns a book it will be put into the returns box.
  • A member of staff will wipe down the plastic cover of the book and once dry the book will go back into circulation.
  • There will be no set day for book changing, children can bring in the books in their book bags/ school bags and change them each morning in the classrooms.
  • Although guidance says we should limit items going to and from home we are allowing reading books home so we can all encourage reading and promote progress.
  • Please look out for further information about Reading Records in the coming weeks.
