Research shows that children who read daily develop reading fluency and become more confident able writers at a quicker rate. Therefore we believe that the most important thing parents can do at home, to help their children achieve at school, is to share books with them.
We encourage children to read daily at home and try to ensure that those who do not get a daily read at home have one in school. All children's reading is celebrated individually with our '30 reads' prizes being given by the Head and Deputy Head at break times for those children that take their Reading Records to them with their records signed. They are also encouraged to talk about what they have been reading at the same time.
Take a look at the Waterstones Children's Book Prize for some great books to read!
