Reading at home

Reading is arguably one of the most important skills that a child will ever learn.


Children who read regularly are able to use the features from books in their writing and, therefore, become good writers. It is a fact that children who are good readers achieve well in other subjects, as well as English, as it helps them with their knowledge and understanding. At St Patrick’s, children are heard read regularly by staff both individually and in groups. However, regular reading at home is equally important. We would be grateful if parents could hear their child read regularly at home – say three or more times a week – and ask them questions about what they have read, in order to help improve their accuracy, fluency and understanding. This will help support their learning in school and help them to make even better progress in English and other curriculum areas. Many thanks for your anticipated support.
