Reading over the holidays
Every level of academic success is connected to reading. The quality of a child’s reading is often a sure sign to their ability to be able to succeed at school and beyond.
At Iqra, we use a reading program called Bug club to help your child develop their reading.
Lockdown has meant that some of our children are now behind by as much as 4 months in their reading which-if we do not intervene now-can have a long term effect on their progress in school.
As a parent, you can make a huge difference to your child’s progress through supporting them in reading everyday. Ten minutes everyday can make a huge difference to their progress at school.

A selection of fresh fruits is being will be provided to the pupils in Year 3,4,5 and 6, daily at no cost to parents. This is a new initiative from Iqra School to promote healthy eating and is in addition to the fruits already provided to the Nursery to Year 2 classes. Please encourage your children to eat the fresh fare provided and remind them of the many benefits of healthy eating. We are hoping to instill good eating habits for the future whilst contribution to their 5 a day!
Parents are no longer to send in snacks! Win! Win!
