Book Bingo

Sometimes we all get stuck in our ways and end up choosing the same author or style of book. The ‘Book Bingo Reading List’ encourages children to read a variety of authors and types of books during the year. The list contains many wonderful book titles, carefully compiled by staff and full of recommended reads for your child. There is a variety of fiction, including picture books and poetry. The books on the list are linked to year group topics and author studies. Most copies of the books are available in the school library or in your child’s class reading area and they are welcome to change them as often as needed.

 Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes will be awarded as and when children complete different stages of the bingo. To achieve Gold, your child must read and be able to summarise the plot for all 30 books on the list, 20 for Silver and 10 for Bronze. Each time your child has finished reading a book, they need to get it signed off by their teacher.

 If your child particularly enjoys a book, they can write a book review which can then be displayed in the school library. Templates for book reviews can be found in the library.

 Please continue to sign children’s home/school books when you have read with them, as our expectation remains that all children will read at least 3 times a week with an adult. This is a huge support to developing their reading fluency and confidence and research is very clear that children who are reading regularly at home are far more likely to succeed in all areas of school and also improve their chances at secondary school and beyond.

 Happy Reading!
