Supporting reading at home

We know reading regularly with your child can make a massive difference to their progress. But it isn’t always easy to fit it in day-to-day, especially at the moment.

Here are some easy ways you can make reading a part of every day:

  1. Don’t worry about how long you read for. Every minute spent reading makes a bigger difference than you realise!
  2. Don’t worry about what your children are reading: recipes, cereal packets, catalogues… It’s all useful! Keep books and other reading materials close by.
  3. Reading to kids of all ages is helpful. If your child isn’t reading by themselves yet, read with them.
  4. Ask lots of questions: Who, what, where, when and why and ask them to summarise when you’ve finished.

Some of our teachers have been busy recording themselves reading a favourite book or poem. Look out for these on our year group noticeboards or the Nursery and Reception Instagram accounts over the coming weeks.
