Stanhope Primary School



Each child has a free choice book (banded) and a reading diary to take home. 

When your child reads at home, please write in their diary with the date, book title and any comments about their reading. If your child reads four or more times in a week, they will receive a class dojo. 


It is important that you read with your child as much as you possibly can, it makes a huge difference to their fluency, understanding and confidence.


There is a link to a page with books recommended by Miss Robyn which may help you choose books to read at home which are not linked to your childs book band.

Below is a link to the video resource centre where there are videos showing you how to read with your child and the questions you can ask them when they are reading.
We are looking forward to showing families round our school, ready for the September 2024 Reception intake. You can book a visit by contacting the school office on 0115 9553440.
