Reading Rewards

Prizes to be won…

Introduction to ‘Southwick Community Primary School Reads’…

Reading is very important to EVERYONE at Southwick Primary so as a result of this we have a Whole School Reading Reward system, where children have Reading Punch Cards and whenever they read 10 books they get to pick a prize from the Reading Prize Box. This box is full of books aimed at children at all stages of their reading.

Children, who have a complete Punch Card, meet in the dining all every Friday to select their prize. This is a really fun experience as you can see how excited the children are about reading.

Working alongside our Whole School Reading Reward system is Accelerated Reader. Accelerated Reader is a computer-based program that we use to monitor reading practice and progress. It helps us guide to books that are aimed at their individual reading level. Children take short quizzes after reading a book to check if they’ve understood it.

We are looking at developing the role of our Reading Ambassadors for September so the children, who are Reading Ambassadors, organise and disseminate the prizes.
