A note to Pupils from Renaissance Place and Mrs Wilkinson
If finished AR book, make few notes on the book to go over at later date before testing when back in school that you feel are of importance to you if a thicker book like Harry Potter.
Thinner books read a few times over the period of time you are off ready for being able to test on the book at later date.
Please keep to your 20 minutes a day reading or longer if you are a keen reader and fill in your reading log.
As you can see we have a whole host of options available to your child to carry on reading at home. We can't wait to catch up with you the students to see how they got on!
