Reading is so important.
Please ensure that your child reads their home/school reading book every day for a minimum of 10 minutes as well as writing a comment in their record book about what they have read.
If parents/guardians are interested in learning more about the teaching of reading and how to support their child, there is a free reading course being conducted in the school in partnership with Haringey Family Learning Department. Please see the Reading Co-ordinator - Mrs Imbrah.
Ask your child what they are reading about and discuss it with them.
Can they predict what might happen if it is a fiction genre?
If non fiction, what facts have they learnt?
Ask them to write short book reviews of the books they have read.
Purchase the newspaper, 'First News' (sold in Sainsburys) or go on the website. This paper reports on current events but is written so children can understand.
