Summer Reading Challenges

Open University's Summer Reading Adventure!

There are 20 expeditions along the way, can you conquer them all? Which ones will you find easy? Which will introduce you to new experiences? Which will challenge you most?

Colour each conquest on the map as you complete it! You’ll soon discover there are so many things to read and places to read them in. Readers who finish the adventure can share their colourful maps with The Open University by using the hashtag #OUReadingAdventure

Looking forward to welcoming you back to school!

Books to Build Resilience in Difficult Times

These are very different times for all of us at the moment, and while some people may be finding this time enjoyable in lots of ways, we are also facing many challenges - like not being able to see our friends and family whenever we would like to. However, it's really important that we learn to build resilience in times like these, as life often throws tricky situations at us that we need to learn from and be able to bounce back from. We've attached a list of some fantastic books which demonstrate how others have faced challenging times and managed to build resilience. Reading some of these books will not only be enormously enjoyable, but they may also help you learn how build your resilience even more than you already have. We hope you enjoy some of these. 

St Richard's Reading Strategies

St Richard's Reading Strategies

These are St Richard’s reading strategies. We use these alongside our phonics knowledge to help us decode words. Discuss these techniques with your child when you are reading together. Your child will be set reading tasks on their individual class pages and will be sent home with reading books. Please also use the links on this page and the individual class pages to access reading materials on line. 

Reading is an essential skill and key to unlocking learning. During this time of home learning, please read, read and read some more. Read anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere.
