Reading Matters!

  • Did you know that parental involvement has more effect than schooling on attainment in children age 5-16?
  • Did you know that children of parents who take an active interest in their education make greater progress than other children?
  • Did you know that reading for pleasure at home is one of the factors that increases the likelihood of success later in life?
  • Did you know that children who enjoy reading have an average standardised reading score 11 points higher than children who do not enjoy reading?

In school, we are looking at exploring new approaches to engage parents and children in the joy of reading.

One strategy we have used to interest the older children in reading a wider range of books is Kestrels' reading challenge. 5 of our year 6 super-readers have already completed the challenge, which includes reading a classic, a book that has won a prize and a book of poetry.
