We have a Book Bingo in our reading area to promote reading for pleasure. Once the children have read a themed book (See Below), they write their name on the bingo card.  If they get a line, they get a lovely surprise and if they get a full house then they get a fun treat! Please help your child at home by encouraging them to read in the following themes.

The themes are:


A book recommended by someone at home


A book with an animal in it


A book recommended by a friend
