Reading Championship Guide
In Reception and Key Stage 1, pupils will be rewarded according to the number of occasions they read at home, as opposed to the number of books they read. Your child will therefore earn their bronze badge once they have read at home 20 times, rather than once they have read 20 books. In Key Stage 2, pupils will continue to earn badges for the number of books they read.

Ensuring our children have access to a high-quality and engaging education is our core purpose in order to develop them as lifelong learners. Central to this are our 5 core values, which underpin everything we do:
- One team – We listen to each other and value each other’s opinions and we do as we are asked first time.
- Respect – We care for each other and look after property.
- Trust – We always tell the truth.
- Community – We treat others as we would wish them to treat us.
- High expectations – We do our best and keep ourselves safe.
Worth Valley Primary School is a reading school. We aim to teach the skills of reading alongside developing a love of language and stories.
“Live an interesting life. Meet people. Read a lot and widely, learn from the great writers.”
My favourite children’s author is Michael Morpurgo; has been for many years. I’d choose to read a Michael Morpurgo story over a “grown-up’s” book any day, even though I’m an adult!
Michael Morpurgo’s books tell timeless stories that children can relate to: stories of people coming together, of relationships, of natural disasters, of historical events. Often the story is told in first person or through a child’s eyes. More often than not, an animal plays an important role in the story.
If you haven’t read a Michael Morpurgo book, try one; they’re magical. And if you have… read another.
We are proud to be part of Leading Learners Academy Trust – working in partnership with fantastic children, committed staff and supportive parents to ensure every pupil achieves their best.
