Reading in Year 2 (Click here)
We have now launched our 'bedtime books' project. We were overwhelmed with by the number of parents/carers who came to support our launch.
The children choose one book to take home and once they have read this book can change it for another. Once they have done this they can collect a glow in the dark in star!
Parents also signed a pledge to read at least 3 times a week with their children!
"There can be few things as powerful as regularly reading to a young child. It has astonishing benefits for children: comfort and reassurance, confidence and security, relaxation, happiness and fun. Giving a child time and full attention when reading them a story tells them they matter. It builds self-esteem, vocabulary, feeds imagination and even improves their sleeping patterns."
