Aspirational Readers & Writing Laureates

Aspirational Readers & Writing Laureates

Each half term teachers will select a child from their class who has proven to be an aspirational reader.  The children will be awarded with a special tie to wear for the half term and also a badge for them to keep permanently.

Adults around the school will be looking for these qualities in their Aspirational Readers:

  • Engaging with a range of books
  • Aiming to meet their targets on Accelerated Reader
  • Achieving well in their Accelerated Reader quizzes
  • Being caught reading without instruction (at appropriate times)
  • Choosing their books sensibly (challenging themselves)
  • Showing improvement in their reading skills
  • Being enthusiastic during our Guided Reading sessions
  • Recommending books to others

Each half term a Writing Laureate will also be chosen by their class teachers.  Writing Laureates will display the following qualities:

  • Aiming to meet their writing targets
  • Being enthusiastic during writing tasks (not just in English lessons)
  • Positive role models to others with their writing
  • Working to their full potential in writing
