Hollingwood's Recommended Reads 

We value reading and believe in the power of books. We have a Recommended Reads list for each year group in school. When children have read a book from the recommended list, they should complete an activity from the menu to show they have thoroughly engaged with their book. They can then earn a sticker for their special bookmark and 2 tokens for their House. When children earn their 10th sticker they will receive 10 tokens. 

Good luck on your reading journey! 



R2L is our Reading to Learn programme that we follow for 30 minutes daily. 

Our R2L book this term is Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian.

We read the book as a class and then complete a variety of activities to help develop our understanding of the text. These activities include Hot Seating, Conscience Alley, Freeze Frames, debates and interviews. We also complete short writing tasks, grammar activities and reading comprehension questions based on Bloom's Taxonomy. 



Every day we spend 10 minutes Uninterrupted Sustained Silent Reading. This gives us the opportunity to nurture our love of reading.

Please check your child's Homework Diary for their daily entry.
