Strive for five




Reading is an essential skill for your child to develop. Perhaps even the most important, as it is the key to accessing all other areas of the curriculum. Reading enables children to develop their vocabulary, to improve their writing, and to learn new things about our world! Reading is also proven to help reduce anxiety and improve mental well-being.

Here at Tonge Moor, we are always striving for five reads a week to give our children the best opportunities in life. When you have read with your child, please make sure to sign their reading record and send it into school every day.

We celebrate reading by awarding Star Reader certificates in our celebration assemblies. Children who achieve this are invited to join a special breakfast on Friday mornings.
