Reading Challenges

Reading is the most vital learning tool your child can develop. It’s also great fun and relaxing too! National expectation and standard for attainment in reading is HIGH. It is essential that your child is encouraged to read at home, with an adult, and to select challenging books.

Many of our KS2 children are choosing books to read first thing in the morning which are well below the level required to meet the demands of the new curriculum. Let’s work together to ensure reading remains a priority for improvement.

What are you Reading?

Thanks to all Abbey pupils for showing such enthusiasm and love for reading. Tell me what you are reading now … give it a score out of 10 and tell me all about it!

Keep on reading! The best two blogs will get a £15.00 book token (and a surprise gift!) in Friday’s assembly.

What’s your funniest book moment?

I love the hilarious ‘Squiggly Spaghetti’ moment in ‘The Twits’ when Mrs Twit serves her grizzly husband worms!

You can read the chapter yourselves if you have the book! Or … watch the You Tube clip (with your parents’ permission) on

What’s your funniest book moment?”
