We would like to remind parents and carers of the importance of sharing a book with their children at home and hearing them read no matter how old they are. Reading is such an important life skill that opens up a world of opportunity. The more books the children enjoy, either from reading themselves or being read to by an adult, the more their vocabulary will increase and this supports not only their speaking and listening skills but their writing too. Reading also supports a creative mind, improves imagination, understanding and increases knowledge. Thank you for supporting your children with reading.
