Why should you read with your child?

Why is reading so important?

Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Here’s how you can get your child off to a great start.

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, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.

So, don't waste any more time. Sit down with your child today and get lost in a book!  For more information, call into school and have a chat with the class teacher who can help give you tips on developing a love of reading at home, or click on the link below which provides some great ideas and support for reading.
