Children who read are more likely to succeed!
It has been proven that children who read aloud to an adult and who are read to from an early age are more likely to succeed academically. That's why we are so pleased to see Year Four using the Accelerated Reader programme so effectively. Proficient readers develop greater confidence in all subjects and have a significant advantage over their peers when they reach secondary school. We all want our children to get ahead. The easiest way to help them is to set aside ten minutes each day to hear them read. You'll be surprised at how well they pronounce difficult vocabulary. Ask them about their favourite author. Share your own experiences. It really is a great way to bond and share wonderful memories.
