Probably the most valuable thing that you can do to support your child in their learning is listening to them read. Ideally we would love to have children read to an adult every day and although we read with your child as part of their English lessons and weekly in a small group, however we are unable to offer the quality one-to-one sessions you provide at home so we really value your support in this area.

Children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 will bring home three books a week, of which at least one will link to their phonics teaching.

For the children in Key Stage 2, we use the Accelerated Reader programme and this relies on regular reading (30 minutes a day).
