Reading in school and at home
Reading is a vital foundation for all educational achievement. If a child cannot read fluently, they will struggle in all their subjects in school.
Good reading does not just mean being able to work out the words on the page. It means being able to understand those words, talk about the ideas in them, and be able to approach a wide range of text types confidently.
Nowadays, with so many distractions, it can be harder than ever to encourage children to spend time and effort practising their reading. Yet that is what we must do. Children who read at home for just 10 minutes a day are 13 times more likely to reach the expected level.
We all want our children to do the very best they can and eventually leave school well qualified to make choices for their whole lives.
