Reading at Home





Learning to read is one of the most important things your child will learn at  school. Everything else depends on it, so in Year One we put as much energy as we possibly can into making sure that every single child learns to read as quickly and proficiently as possible.

We want to foster a love of reading – and want every child to want to read for themselves. This is why we work hard to make sure children develop a love of books as well as simply learning to read.


At home, there are many ways to encourage your child to want to read from reading in unusual places to alternating pages with each other. If you want tips on encouraging your child to read, then click on the link below.

Due to the fun and curious ways that we explore books at school, many children in Year One throughly enjoy reading. The next step in developing this love is to build your child's comprehension. This enables them to strengthen their understanding and further their love of books.
