Why read at home with your child
There is good evidence to suggest that young people who read for pleasure daily perform better in reading skills tests than those who never do. However, a recent survey carried out by the National Literacy Trust has indicated a decline in the amount of time children spend reading for pleasure. (DFE June 2012)
Developing a culture of reading is a key priority at Latimer. We want our children to live and breathe books, adore finding new authors and losing themselves in a good novel. We know that reading is a key to life long success for all our children. Talk to your child's class teacher to see how you can support with developing reading at home.
