Early Bird Reading

Foundation Stage 2 and Years 1 & 2

The ‘Early Bird’ reading has been very positive and a real success each morning helping our learners to practise and improve their reading skills.  Many parents/carers take advantage of this each morning.  The most important part is that you are present as support for your child.  I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the expectations for all year groups.


  • When the doors open at 8.30am you and your child can come in and read together for 10 minutes.
  • Everyone is expecting it to be a quiet, calm session.
  • No learner should be left by Parent/Carer before 8.40am even if a member of staff is present. (Staff are preparing for the days teaching and organising resources).
  • Please ask older learners to remain outside as rooms can get too busy if too many people come in.
  • Remember daily reading and comments in the ‘reading diary’ = ‘smiley faces’, which added together make ‘stamps’.


Thank you for your continued support

Mrs L Knibbs
