Reading at home

Reading is a key priority for us and we encourage parents to read with their children at least three times a week at home. We have a rewards system in place to encourage home reading.  Your child will be issued with a library book in the first 2 weeks so that you can start to enjoy reading together. Children progress through the reading levels at different speeds . For most children the books we send home will be for you to share together, looking at the pictures, identifying where the words are on a page, talking about what is happening and what might happen next. Please record the reading in the home school diary so that we can see what you have been reading and how the children have got on. 


If you would like some extra support to help you read with your child feel free to talk with myself or one of the teaching assistants and we will be happy to discuss some strategies and ideas with you. We also run workshops to support reading and writing strategies.

Better reading partners


As a school we encourage parents and carers to come into school to support with reading. As part of this initiative we offer some training around reading with children. If you feel you could spare a regular slot each week to come in a read with children in school please see myself or any of the staff who will be happy to help. Existing better reading partners state that they not only enjoy their time in school but that it has also helped them to support their own children's reading at home.
