Supporting Your Child With Reading
At Southam Primary School we want our children to develop a passion and enjoyment for reading that will stay with them for life. In order to achieve this we need your help! At school children read every day in many different contexts using books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, interactive media etc.
Children at primary school are never too old to read with their parents and should be reading to an adult every day – even if it is for only ten minutes. Research has shown that children who read outside of school are 13 times more likely to read above the expected level for their age. Parents are really important reading role models- children’s attitudes to reading improve the more they see their parents read.
To support your child to foster a lifelong love for reading we need to work in partnership together. The way you can have the biggest impact on your child’s reading is by reading with them every day.
