READING AND READING BOOKS
Reading is one of life's most important skills and is something which is highly valued here at Holy Trinity.
We share lots of exciting and engaging stories in class every day, to promote a love of reading.
In Key Stage 1, reading books will be give out according to your child's Read Write Inc group. Please ensure your child brings their reading folder in to school every day to allow their books to be changed on the correct day. Please read with your child regularly at home.
