is a huge focus for us this term and you can help by hearing your child read as often as possible. Finding a short amount of time each day to share a book with your child, whether they are in Nursery or Year 6, has a massive impact on confidence, fluency and overall enjoyment. If your child is a reluctant reader, consider buying the occasional magazine or comic (Match Magazine worked a treat for my son). If time is short, encourage your child to read road and shop signs as you drive/walk to school or read labels as you shop. Thank you to our marvellous parents and grandparents who have volunteered to read with our children. We could still do with a few more reading volunteers so please indicate on the slip below if you are willing to help between 9-9.30am or 2.15-3pm for one or two days per week.
