Dorset Council Library buildings may be closed, but they have updated their web pages to reflect what libraries can offer to people at home, even if you can’t visit an actual library. They are updating the pages regularly so make sure you keep checking to find out what’s new, what’s on offer, and what you can join in with.

It is essential that children are heard read as much possible right from reception to Year 6. Children need to read regularly to an adult to help improve fluency and expression, to enhance their understanding of vocabulary and to answer questions based on their reading to aid their understanding of what they have read.
The children in KS1 are working on their rainbow reads- collecting book marks for the amount of reads they complete at home.
In KS2 the children are aiming to complete the Reading Karate Challenge. The will earn a coloured wrist band for the numbers of reads they have completed by Christmas.
