The Reading Resolutions Initiative was so successful over the past few years that we have decided to make it an annual event. It generally runs for three weeks during February and March.
For the first week, pupils have no written homework so that they have additional time to spend reading. There are many options for them to choose as regards resolutions which they make regarding reading and books. Pupils are encouraged to share their opinions on book which they have read and the "recommend to a friend" idea worked really well for us in the past. If things go well, and pupils are engaging well with the initiative, there may be no written homework again in the third week!!!
We want the pupils to:
- Read high quality books
- Become familiar with the work of good authors
- Learn where to find good book recommendations
- Become a community of readers
- Work as a team to get rewards
- Visit the local library
When the time comes, you will find more information in your child's homework folder or journal.
