Reading

Research has shown that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading test than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures. In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.

 

Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out what’s printed on the page. Through hearing stories, children are exposed to a wide range of words. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital as they start to read. Below is a suggested reading list for your child over the summer holidays.
