At Caldershaw, we know how important reading is: not only to enable us to find out about the world and research specific topics, but (most importantly) in giving life long pleasure. Please read your book every night to an adult and record it in your reading record book. A few pages will do, but make sure you understand what you've read and that you can answer the questions you're asked!
