Wardie’s Reading Riot

Wardie Primary are taking part in a cluster reading initiative alongside Trinity Primary School, Victoria Primary School and Trinity Academy. This cluster reading initiative is called the Reading Riot and it’s aim is to create a reading culture across all of our schools and also the wider community that we live in.

The Reading Riot launched on Monday 23rd of November and since then all of our pupils have been busy reading. Pupils can read books, magazines, a recipe, the newspaper, they can also be read to. Each time they complete a book, or anything they have been reading they must complete their Reading Riot bookmark which looks like this…

Reading Riot Bookmark

In January when pupils have completed both sides of 1 bookmark they will be given a Reading Riot lanyard. Pupils can display what book they are reading and this will help to create conversations about reading and books! Once pupils have completed a whopping 3 bookmarks!! They will be given a Reading Riot wristband which they can proudly display on their wrist.

Since the Reading Riot has started, pupils have been engaging with reading very enthusiastically! Our Reading Riot citizenship group has already introduced great ideas to the school such as an ERIC reading challenge which the pupils loved.

We’ve also been using Get Caught Reading to capture moments of reading right across the school. Look out for people reading emails, books and all sorts! Here’s a selection of photos we’ve taken so far.
