Reading at home

Please help your child by supporting them with their learning at home. The single most important thing for children is reading – please read to them, model reading and hear them read whenever you can.

As a minimum, each child is expected to read 3 times per week. Children’s reading records will need to be signed by an adult so that staff can check their reading progress. Older children in Class 3 and 4 will need a suitable space at home to complete reading and homework tasks. Homework should largely be carried out independently by the children. Where children struggle, please notify their teacher so this may be addressed in school.
