Reading for Pleasure

Everyone at Barnham has the chance to develop their reading skills.  Children will read every single day at school, whether it be 1:1, guided (group), whole group/class or independent.  The children will develop their skills through the teaching of phonics, high frequency word recognition and comprehension.


Helping your child to read is one of the most important things we can do for them and, at Barnham, we all promote the love of reading to ensure that all children are readers before they move on to secondary school.


We are working closely with the Open University (OU) and the United Kingdom Literacy Association (UKLA) to develop our Reading for Pleasure.

Reading Teachers

At Barnham it is super important that our teachers are readers too. We have set up a Reading for Pleasure group alongside the UKLA and the OU to support the teachers at Barnham and in the community.

Olly from Euston Estate was our mystery reader this week, he read 'Olly's Milkshake' and even made us our own smoothies to try after! Thanks Olly!

The Christmas sELFIE Contest

Keturah brought in a story to share with Mole Class in December and it inspired us to take some Christmas selfies on the iPad. Take a look!
