Many children have been remembering to fill in their bookmarks with their number of minutes read every Wednesday evening - ready for us to enter the class total reading minutes on Thursday each week. Whilst we aren’t doing too badly - some classes are definitely ahead in the reading stakes! In Key Stage One, Sapphire Class achieved the most minutes of reading with 1160 in total in term 1. In Key Stage Two, the champions are Amethyst Class, with an impressive 2495 minutes of reading.

There are prize tokens to be won - which give free child entry to various attractions around Kent. Last year, one of our Year 1 classes managed to be the best reading class in the whole of Swale - and we were able to send two children along to Leeds Castle for an award ceremony and photo-call. Obviously, we would love Westlands Primary School to replicate this success - so please encourage your child to record their reading minutes every week, on a Wednesday evening and hand them in to the class teacher or TA on Thursday morning.

Westlands Primary School has been awarded the gold standard for Literacy - an achievement of which we are proud of and would like to congratulate the children on their commitment to improving their reading and thank you for your support in this too.
