How can we help them at home?

Reading at home 


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Dr Seuss 


Reading is a fundamental skill, so by listening to your child read as regularly as possible at home, this will help them develop fluency, pace and understanding, while reinforcing the skills they are learning in school.  

Reading and sharing a range of different genre books with your child is also as equally as important. 


Here is a link to the Oxford Reading Owl website, with some information about the Read Write Inc phonics scheme we follow in school and also about reading at home with your child.
