Simply the BEST!


Here at Bentley High Street Primary, we understand the importance of reading and the impact that quality teaching of this can have on a child's future. Our goal is that every child who is with us experiences a wide range of literature to help develop their curiosity and interest in the wonders on what reading has to offer. We ensure that the teaching of reading is done through texts that capture the children's imaginations and we will always help a child who requires additional support. You can find out more information about how the school aims to teach reading and our justification for this on the document below.
We value the importance of teaching children to read for pleasure. The more a child reads then the more words they exposed to and the greater their vocabulary becomes. In turn, they are then better equipped to articulate themselves and make greater advances in their writing. There are many ways to encourage children to read for pleasure and the following document outlines why this is crucial to children who attend primary schools.

Reading Challenges for 01/02/21 - 26/03/21

If your child is in Key Stage 2 then they have been given an account on Accelerated Reader. This allows us to be able to make sure that your child has a reading book that is perfectly suited to their reading ability and offers the right amount of challenge. On a lot of books, there will be a quiz available which children will be encouraged to complete in school after reading a book. However they can also do this at home too! If they click on the link below, it will take them to a secure server which is specific to our school (and should look like the image below). They simply just need to then click 'I am a student', enter their log in details and click on Accelerated Reader. Your child will have had a demonstration on how to use this in the classroom, however if you need any help, please speak to your class teacher.
