Stop and read!

Wednesday 08 January 2020

To encourage a love of reading Foundation 2 take part in ‘stop and read’ time every day. At ‘stop and read’ time the children can choose to sit on either rainbow or sunshine carpet – the children really enjoy having this choice and find it exciting sitting on a different carpet!

To choose the books read at ‘stop and read’ the children vote for the book they would like to listen to. Each child can place a lego brick alongside the book they would prefer. The tallest tower wins. We talk about the front cover and how it can give us an idea about the book. We also talk about the blurb at the back of the book and how it can give us a clue about the book and help us decide if we would like to listen to the story.

If your child has a book at home they would like to put on the voting table for ‘stop and read’ please bring it in to school – it would be great to share their favourite stories!
