Reading at Home - Guidance for Parents

Reading with your child at home is not only a way to spend time together but will also foster in them a love of stories, characters and adventures.  Reading helps children develop their vocabulary and this impacts on their writing and spelling too.  

Why is Reading at Home Important? - SMART Reading %

We ask parents to spend time reading at home three times a week; this can be reading together, reading to your child or taking it in turns.  Audiobooks are also a great way to spend a car journey or even as a bedtime story to help with sleep.  These websites may also provide some helpful resources and links.
