Reading at home

It is important for pupils to read regularly, preferably daily. Although they will have plenty of opportunity to read in school it would be helpful for parents to continue to read at home with their child. We have a supply of books in school but would also recommend your child joins the free County Library service. http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/libraries . We also recommend encouraging your child to listen to audiobooks, or reading to them yourself, to develop new vocabulary and pronunciation. 

 

Equipment
