Reading Karate

Nansloe Academy's Reading Karate Scheme

Reading Karate Bands and Badges

Our Reading Karate system is an exciting way of encouraging the children to read at home every day - which is our school reading target. Every day we check to see who has read at home or, for the youngest members of the school, who has shared a book with their family.  Numbers of reads are totalled up and each Friday, in our Celebration Assembly, children who have achieved different numbers of reads are awarded with Reading Bands or Reading Badges. The children love this scheme, and it has made a huge difference to the numbers of children who read every day.
