Here at Meadow Vale, we want the children to reach for the stars… the reading stars! We would like to encourage your children to read at least four times a week at home and for you to write this in their reading diary. Each week they achieve this, they will earn a star for their class’s jar. The class with the most stars at the end of the month will win themselves a reward of their choice. We would appreciate your help with supporting your child with this exciting challenge at home.  

We will post photos of the winning classes each month in our Gallery.

At the start of the new academic year, the competition to win the Reading Stars challenge was fierce – in Key Stage 2, 6R were narrowly beaten by only two stars!
