Message from our Head of Early Years

Thank you to all those who attended the Parent Academy this week on reading. 

We hope you found it useful. We will share the recording on Tapestry and Seesaw.

Learning to read allows us to be transported from our own world to another. We want the children to develop a love of reading as this can benefit a child’s education, social and cognitive development, their wellbeing, and their mental health.Reading books aloud to children is equally as important as learning to read at such a young age, it stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. Reading books is also a time where you can have regular and shared time with your child that you can both look forward to, try to make this a part of your daily routine.

If you have any questions about reading with your child, please speak to your child’s class teacher.

I hope you have a relaxing weekend.
