In order to encourage children to extend their learning beyond the classroom I have organised an incentive – ‘Our Tremendous Tree’. I should be very grateful for your support in helping to enable its success. Each time your child reads a book which is additional to their reading scheme book they will ask you to sign an ‘apple’. This will be placed on our ‘reading tree’ in class. Please list the title of the book and add your signature. In addition, If your child brings some learning into school which they have carried out at home (this may be linked to topics of study at school), they will be able to write their name on an apple in school and this will also be placed on the tree. At the end of the term the apples on the tree will be counted and a small prize will be offered to all those children who have five or more apples. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to me.
Thank you for your continued support.
