St John's CE (VC) Primary School

Life in all its fullness


Due to the current guidelines, there have been a few changes to systems in place for the reading and exchanging of reading books. 


  • Your child will bring home at least one reading book on Monday evening, which they need to keep at home, along with their diary, until Friday.
  • On Friday, your child will bring their diary and reading book back to school.  These will stay at school over the weekend for a decontamination period and the diaries will then be checked on the following Monday.
  • Over the weekend, your child will currently be without a book from school, so please read books from your own shelves together.  We are also hoping to give you access to the Rising Stars website, which allows children to read books from their book band and complete some activities about the book.  Furthermore, we are looking at signing the children up to the Epic Reading website for a wider range of books.  This is something that Mrs Hill has used with children in KS2 before and the children have enjoyed.  We will send you details as soon as this is set up.
