At Copthorne we recognise and promote the importance of developing a love of reading and the platform it gives for every child’s future, using a reward scheme called ‘Raving Readers’.
We encourage children to read as much as possible, preferably every day, to improve their reading fluency and their comprehension skills. Every time a pupil reads and their reading record is signed by a responsible adult they receive a tick on the Raving Reader chart in their classroom.
In addition to reading, children have a number of reading journal tasks that they must complete to support their learning.
When the children reach a certain number of ticks and have completed their reading journal tasks, they receive a prize in the weekly Key Stage reward assembly.
