Online Reading Records - Boom Reader

Boom REader - an online reading record

At Flintham Primary School, we place an extremely high value on the importance of reading. Our mission is to instill a love of reading and story-telling in our pupils. We have invested heavily in our phonics scheme Read, Write, Inc and have a wonderful range of books for the children to enjoy. 

We ask parents to log their child's reading on the app when they have read. Our expectation is that children read their book bag book/RWI book at home to parents 4 times a week. We celebrate reading at the end of each half-term in a 'Celebration Assembly' where the children can achieve a different coloured book-worm badge and their name moves along our book badge display in the library. Your child has had to have read 4 times a week over a 5 week period in order to achieve their badge.
