The importance of reading

 

At Greet, reading and high quality texts (picture books, novels, non-fiction and poetry) are central to our curriculum. We believe that reading is the foundation of learning and the most important skill we can teach our pupils.

 

The best way to support your child to get ready for school is to read and share books with them. Through listening to stories, and talking about books (the pictures, what happens in stories and the characters) you are helping to develop your child's:

 

  • listening skills
  • vocabulary and spoken language - laying the foundations for phonics and writing
  • confidence
  • imagination and curiosity
  • love of books

 

You can read to your child in any language.

 

Here are some tips to help you share books with your child at home:
