We hosted our first Reading Breakfast this week before school. This drop-in event provided the opportunity for families to come in and enjoy reading in a different way. Thank you to the PTA for buying pastries for those who came.

Reading Bingo Challenge

Long Lane Spring Reading Bingo Grid.pdf

We would like to introduce the Reading Bingo challenge linked above. We would like all children to enjoy this spring reading challenge at their own level and pace.  Children have until the end of the Easter holidays to complete as many of the challenges as they can.  Of course, these can be adapted to suit their age and level of reading to ensure that all children can join in. For example, adults can share books with children to enable them to access books they may not yet be able to read independently.  

Visit from Poet James Carter - 15/01/24

On Monday 15th January, we had a visit from poet James Carter. He supported children with writing different types of poems from kennings to cinquains. A finale performance was then held in the hall at the end of the day. A huge thanks to the PTA for funding this fantastic experience. 

Stay and Read - 20/11/23

It was great to see so many parents and family members come in to classes at the end of the day to sit and read with the children. This included reading one to one, in small groups and joining in with whole class reading sessions. Children in Rainbow class also enjoyed having family members in to stay and play.
