Reading

Reading at home...

It is important to read every day, especially when you are at home. Unfortunately we are unable to change home reading books in school at the moment, due to social distancing regulations. However there are many other reading opportunities to be found online and in the home. It is very important that children continue to read every day and children should be encouraged to read for pleasure, choosing their own reading wherever possible. Children who read for pleasure have been shown to do well at school and in later life.

We love reading! Have a listen to some of our favourite stories.
