Reading is a key area of development for the children in foundation stage (as it is across the whole school!); it underpins many other areas of learning. One thing that helps the children to develop their own reading and writing is being read to by an adult. Reading to your child will embed good language skills and will develop a love of books and stories that will last a life time.
When your child brings home their reading book, we ask that you encourage them to read every day for about 5 minutes. For tips about how to help your child do their daily reading, see the document below and the note in the front of your child's reading diary.
