New Reception 2021
How many books can you read this Summer?
Over the summer holidays, could you read a new book every day? Share the book together, discuss the stories/facts, make predictions, ask questions, and share your favourites with your family and friends! You could use the library, ask friends if you can borrow books that they enjoy, and remember to try non fiction as well!
Please bring in your favourite book (named) so that you can Show and Tell it during your first weeks at school!
