Reading

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The benefits of reading to your child are:-

  • Sharing stories, talking and singing every day helps your child’s development in many ways.
  • Through reading regularly to your child, they will learn to value books and will experience stories that will spark their imagination and stimulate their curiosity. 
  • Your child will become familiar with a wide range of sounds, words and language and will be developing early literacy skills, like the ability to listen to and understand words and the ability to focus.
  • Children who are read to when they are young are more likely to be readers later in childhood.
  • Reading, particularly at bedtime, provides a great opportunity to have snuggly, one-on-one time that will help create strong parent-child bonds.

This year we celebrated World Book Day at home by participating in extreme reading. A sample of some of the photographs are on this page.
