This term, I am going to be listening to children read across the school as part of our drive to get more children reading. I will choose a few special children each week to share their book with me and talk to me about their favourite bits!
Children will be chosen completed at random so that I can get a real sense of how well our school is doing. More importantly, it will be great to spend some quality time with the children.
Reading is such an important skill for the following reasons:
- It’s fun and keeps us entertained
- It’s the ‘gateway’ to our world and useful for finding out information
- It helps us to develop our imagination
- It helps us to widen our vocabulary for when we write or when speaking.
I will be making a note in your child’s Home Learning Log if they have been specially selected to read with me and they may even get some extra Privilege Points!
