Last session nearly all of S1 received their Bronze Reading Record certificates recognising the reading they did over the course of the year. Requirements were to read 5 texts, at least 3 of which should be books. Texts also included magazines; video games; films; TV programmes. Pupils were expected to just read one text and produce one task sheet a term which could be done in library periods or, in many cases, as homeowrk. Of course, many pupils did read more than these minimum requirements.
Over the summer holidays the Bronze Reading Record task sheets have all been up-dated to provide space for pupils’ personal response to texts in line with Curriculum for Excellence Litereacy Outcome 3.11a as well as adding an extra couple of task sheets for pupils to chose from: Mock Facebook page (for lead character) or prepare a Two Minute Talk.
