Top Tips for Reading:

Check out our Doors for World Book Day! 

Sibling Readers club

We have recently trained up our year 5 and 6 children who have siblings to read with them. They do a fantastic job segmenting and blending words for their brothers/sisters! The children have really enjoyed listening to their siblings and asking them questions about the stories that are being read. A huge well done to key stage one, fabulous reading! Miss Gregory.

Linking our Reading to Mental Health

We have been lucky enough to have beautiful books donated to us by Accrington Libraray all about our Mental Health, there are stories for all ages/ Year 6 Mental Health/ worries and anxieties/ anger and ways to recognise its ok to feel all these things!

Santa has come early to Huncoat...and delivered us some fantastic class reads: 

The Christmasaurus Picture Book

The Pine Tree

The Christmasaurus and the Naughty List
