Reading is an essential life skill and a fundemental part of the curriculum at Studley Green. It is a well established fact that better readers make better writers as they have a wealth of reading experience to draw on when completing written activities. In addition to this being able to read for information helps the children in all aspects of their learning across the curriculum.
Here at studley we are working hard to create a positive reading culture that encorages all children to read for pleasure and enjoyment as well as to enhance their learning.
As a shcool we demonstrate the importance of reading by:
- Ensuring it has a high profile in all our classrooms
- Dedicating time to reading in our timetables
- Providing up to date, ability levelled and engaging texts in order to develop reading skills
- Encouraging all children to borrow books of their choice from the newly updated school library
- Giving all children access to a wide range of free reading books where they can select books they want to read.
- Opening the school library during lunchtimes for children who want to read more.
- Expecting reading to form the basis of home/school involvement for all year groups.
You can help to by doing one or two simple things, for example
- Let your child/children see you as a reader as often as possible.
- Share your child/children's school reading book with them and talk about what has been read.
- Share a bedtime story.
- Listen to audio book in the car.
- Take your child/children to the new town library and become a member gaining access to thousands of books.
