A year of reading

 


Research shows that your interest and involvement in your child’s learning and education is more important than anything else in helping your child fulfil their potential.  As parents, you are the people who go with your child on their learning journey, from the day they are born to the  time they become an adult.  You, as the parent, carer or guardian know your child best.

You taught your children the first things they ever knew. Young children watch what adults do and learn by copying them. Reading is no different, but they must want to learn to read. It will help if they can see others enjoying reading themselves. Boys, in particular, need to know that reading is important, and fathers and grandfathers reading to them can help.

On this page you will find some downloadable documents which we hope that you will find useful in helping you with your child's reading:
