Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.

Useful Information



Your child should have brought home a reading book and a yellow reading record which you have hopefully seen! The reading log contains useful comprehension questions to ask your child when reading with them/once they have read independently. It also contains a useful guide to reading. 


We want the Year 6 children to enjoy reading a variety of texts (fiction, non-fiction, newspaper and magazines), therefore if your child has a book or magazine at home that they would like to read, please encourage them to include this in their Reading Log. We expect the children to read at least 3 times a week, but the more reading the better! 

Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Thursdays only


We will be using a stamp in their reading records to indicate that we have recorded their reading as we are continuing with the reading awards.


Bronze: 50 reads

Silver: 80 reads

Gold: 100 reads
