Reading Rewards

We are delighted to announce the arrival of our fantastic new Reading Vending Machine!


At Collingwood, we place reading at the heart of everything we do and are keen to continue maximising home reading. Each classroom in school has a Reading Chart, on which children colour in a square and earn 1 dojo point each time they read at home. When our children reach 10, 20 and 30 home reads they receive a small prize from their teacher’s prize box and when they reach 40 home reads they are now able to select a brand new book of their choice from our new vending machine! Our school council have worked hard to select exciting new books that will engage and inspire your little readers!

  • children learn 4,000-12,000 words a year through reading?
  • if you read one book a day to your child, they will have heard 1850 books by the time they are 5?
