Reading at home
Reading is key in unlocking your child’s potential. It helps them in every area of their learning and will lead to better exam results and jobs in the future.
Just 10 minutes a day will help to develop your child’s reading skills.
Please read with your child every day to help develop not only their reading skills but also their love of reading.
Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures. In fact, there’s evidence to suggest that reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.
