Reading is a top priority at St Anne’s, we have a reading rich environment to promote reading for pleasure. This is done through our half termly core texts and additional texts that are taught alongside these in Guided Reading or read as class books.
Reading at home is also very important to continue to develop children’s love of reading.
“Young people who read outside of class daily are 13 times more likely to read above the expected level for their age.” National Literacy Trust
There are many ways in which you can help to support your child at home with reading, click here for our Home Reading flyer: Reading at St Anne’s

Please read the information below on how we will be celebrating harvest time this year.
The #SelfcareSummer Primary pack is full of fun activities designed to help children look after their mental health and well being while enjoying themselves over the summer holidays.
This resource is from the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.
It is really important to allow children the time and opportunity to talk about their feelings, worries or anxieties especially at this current time. These activities will support that opportunity to talk about their feelings.
There are more great resources to support children with their mental health and well being on the ELSA website. Click on the ‘home’ link below to find out more.

As we move into the month of July,
it is time for our value to change.
This month our value is Hope.
Hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen.
The apostle Paul wrote in several places about what hope leads to or makes: patience, courage, and joy. It makes us stable, and we are saved in hope. It is one of the three things which last: faith, hope, and love. Christians place hope in God’s promises, and in the God who delivers on those promises.
We are hopeful about the futures, as the St. Anne’s family, and during these tricky times it is important that we do not give up and we hold on to the hope that will bring us back together safely.
At St Anne’s we all love reading, and although life is a bit different this year, this won’t stop us all from enjoying reading a good book and taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge!
