We are a reading school...
50 million words read and quizzed on Accelerated Reader (Sept 2012 - July 2013)
2013-14 Update: 28.03.2014
Books read and quizzed on since the beginning of the school year: 4,525
Number of words read and quizzed on since beginning of the school year: 41,110,616 Words read and quizzed on in the last week: 1,492,470
We smashed our 40 million word target!
Target for Summer 2014: 60 million words
Well done everyone... the number of words read each week has increased from 1.3 million to consistently over 1.5 million words.
We are really focusing on the 'Engaged Reading Time' for each child who is reading on AR. The minimum target for all children is 15 minutes engaged reading time per day. All children read in school every day... but this MUST be supplemented by reading at home for children to really benefit and make progress. Reading is a very important part of weekly homework. Our results show that the children who read regularly and have a good 'engaged reading time' are the children who are doing really well across the curriculum. Are you doing all you can to encourage and support your child to get into the habit of reading at home? Children on AR don't need to read aloud to you... but it will really help them if you take an interest in what they are reading and talk to them about the books they read. If you would like some help PLEASE talk to your child's teacher who will be able to support you in helping your child.
Houghton Primary School is a small school set in beautiful grounds at the heart of a village close to the River Great Ouse. It has recently undergone a major re-development providing seven new classrooms, new cloakrooms and a superb atrium. An 'extended schools' facility providing new accommodation for the Phoenix Club (childcare) and the village pre-school.
Our aspiration is that our school community will reflect all that is best in society. To achieve this we promote positive behaviour and reward care and considerate acts.
We work in partnership with many people who share a common vision of the development of every child within a caring and supportive environment. Our school, together with all our educational partners, will strive to make the time you spend with us as enjoyable and fruitful as possible.
Please take a good look around our website - through the pages on this site we aim to give you a 'flavour' of our school. We hope that prospective families will come and visit to find out more. We hope that our current families will make this website their homepage and use it to keep up-to-date with all the latest news.
