Red Class Reading Raffle

In Red class we are introducing a new strategy to encourage reading at home. If a child is heard read by an adult (parent, grandparent, childminder etc.) and it is recorded/signed in their reading record at least 4 times a week the child will receive a raffle ticket. This raffle will be drawn on a Friday at random and the winner of the draw will get to select a prize from a lucky dip bag.

Thank you, 

Red Class Team
